It’s National Poetry Day so I thought I’d reblog one of the very few poems I’ve attempted. I’m usually rubbish at writing them but I quite like this one and it fits in well with the theme this year which is “remember”.
[I don’t usually write poems, because I’m not really sure how to and I don’t think I’m good at it, but we had a group exercise set a couple of weeks ago to expand on the opening words “I was down that road before” and for some reason, a poem is what came to me so I decided to give it a shot. It might need some more work in future but we’ll see if I ever get the courage to return to it.]
I was down that road before
In another lifetime
When dreams seemed attainable
And hope was more than a feeling
Now all I gleam are passing shadows
Of a life that could have been
So when I’m glum
I pause and remember
That dreams that haven’t come true
Were probably never meant to be.
