Today, write an
abecederian poem. It’s when the first letter of each line follows the order of the alphabet. So, the first line starts with A, the second with B, the third with C, etc. In the end you should have a 26-line poem.
A mounting disquiet all around
Blogging is slowly taking over
Concern that they’re losing me
Don’t spend enough time with them
Even when I’m there, I am not quite
Forever thinking of what next to write
Generous with my time over this
How can I justify to family and friends?
I feel inordinately fulfilled when I write
Joy in reaching all corners of the world
Kindred spirits hold me captive in words
Love discovered in rhythm and rhyme
My soul finds a new form of expression
New understanding of who I truly am
Offers me so many insights into life
Perhaps even realization of my dream
Question is how do I balance my time
Remembering my responsibilities and
Socialising in the real world. I still need
To prioritise time for everyone in my life
Understanding all of this, I still have space, a
Vacuum that needs filling with others like me
Who understand this need too, to break down
Xenophobia’s geographical historical barriers
You and I would never have met otherwise
Zealous in pursuit of this freedom to defend.
