Temptation (Day 011, #100DaysOfBlogging)

I’m doing #100DaysOfBlogging along with Reshmy. The theme for Day 11 of the writing adventure is Temptation.

temptation 11

So near, an inch away,
Temptation looming
Every hour every day;
A goal in mind, I walk,
Trying to walk the talk;
Ignoring a temptation
That so silently stalks.

A little bit of sweet sin,
A fine line so very thin;
Little resistance, I must,
In my targets to trust;
For a new healthier me,
To not succumb now,
And be temptation free!

As part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Reema and I have started this weekly prompt we’ve decided to call as Wednesday Verses. 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!

Prompt #29 is “Temptation”.

Please link up only if you’ve written a poem for the prompt!

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.
