For today’s prompt, we’re dealing with our third “Two for Tuesday” prompt(s):
Write a “what you are” poem, or…
Write a “what you are not” poem.
For instance, you may be a teacher, a student, brave, scared, a person, an animal, a plant, and well, wherever this one takes you. Or not, of course.
WE ARE US
by John Yeo
I am the one who forgets
To check the clock on the wall.
Working away with interest
On the magic of the moment.
I am the one who reflects
On many areas of life,
Watching change unfold
Recording my thoughts with care.
I am one who never rejects
Change or new situations,
I welcome and nourish the chance
To give and never look back.
I am able to work and relax
A follower, never the leader,
I follow my instincts and we share
Our future, now you are there.
I am a husband without regrets
Enjoying this love we share.
We shrug off cares and worldly strife,
Devoted to each other for life.
