The posings of a poet.

Self Improvement


Would you at a moments notice break
yourself upon the altar of change
and dare to believe ahead of time for goodness sake
that you would grow to encompass much beyond your range
Would you walk out on all that you had built
and laugh at those that called you traitor
for knowing is the thing that keeps blood from being spilt
when the only allegiance that matters is you, but greater
Would you toss out what you had bought as true
and reconsider that others could not have been so wrong
and lift up to the skies nothing borrowed nor indeed blue
for happiness would abound ere too long
Would you dare to call it inspiration that makes you leap
from the known out far into the abyss
could you find yourself and dare to keep
the first longings of that kiss

  1. Questions which I dare say most would respond ‘no’ to…especially giving up all they have and believe for change.

  2. To hold above those of the world, your own dreams so that when the stillness comes, and a voice is heard, you’ll recognize it as your own ~ your own song being sung anew! Lovely. ~ Bobbie

    I love this type of rhyme scheme, probably my favourite to be honest!
    “Would you toss out what you had bought as true
    and reconsider that others could not have been so wrong
    and lift up to the skies nothing borrowed nor indeed blue
    for happiness would abound ere too long” That part was my favourite, well done!

  4. Change is scary but yes, yes I would!
