Defy Gravity

Feelings of questioning doubt
and inadequacy, as though
fifteen has come back to haunt me
all over again, however momentary.

Album on repeat, songs with lyrics
both powerful and fleeting,
full of themselves to take on authority,
to stand up for something.

And we must! break the concrete
around our feet and quit,
quit being afraid of everything,
and finally find, our wings do – defy gravity.

    I think this is the best poem you have written, though your erratic punctuation muddies the last stanza ;) Nevertheless a beautiful read x

      I’m not sure if I should thank you for the compliment or chide you for the constant remarks against my grammar and punctuation. Poetry is subjective, so to you, this may be one of my best, but not necessarily to someone else or even myself. Also, being dyslexic, grammar or punctuation have never been a strength of mine, but thank you for pointing that out.
