Don’t Lose Heart…

one day, it’ll be broken,
your castle of glass,
but don’t worry or cry,
just let the day pass.

don’t say it’s too late,
just wait and rise above,
and if you need a reason,
let the reason be love.

NaPoWriMo was first held in 2003. It is an annual project where participating poets write a poem each day of April.

The prompt at NaPoWriMo asks to take five song titles from a randomised playlist, and make a poem using the titles in it.
The five songs that inspired this poem are (in order): Broken (by Lifehouse), Castle of Glass (by Linkin Park), Cry (by James Blunt), Don’t Say It’s Too Late (by Westlife) and Love Me For A Reason (by Boyzone)

(9th April 2014)


Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
