Irksome (Day 004, #100DaysOfBlogging)

I’m doing #100DaysOfBlogging along with Reshmy. The theme for Day 4 of the writing adventure is Irksome.

So close, yet so far,
How irksome things seem;
Nearest to perfect it feels,
The fruition of a dream.
In the way, old beliefs,
Cast by society’s eyes,
Diminishing the value,
Of what seems my prize.
This helpless feeling,
It holds me quite strong,
Tempts me to give up,
And drown before long.

But something tells me,
Hope isn’t quite dead,
And it gives me strength,
To get up out of bed.
Another day begins soon,
First light is now near,
And I step forth again,
No longer irked by fear.

Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. We are happy to have you rhyme with us. Welcome!

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.
