Hope lies on the other side

Scale The Wall

Scale the wall. Fear is empty
Fear is not working
Scale the wall. Fear is down trodding

Fear is hurtful
Scale the wall. Fear is mockery
Fear is hope taking
Scale the wall.
Fear is not worth it
Managed by I'll try

Conquered by I'll do

Hope lies on the other side
Ready to embrace and support
Life's eternal goodness.

I'm trying out some of the poetic 'instant' forms on the - make a poem - site.

As I think about next school term I want to encourage the kids to write more poetry, even though I remain -- no poet

Poetry by the young is always interesting to read.
Quite a helpful tool as a means for them to express whatever their hearts desire or feel.

Often times poetry can bring one closer to who they truly are or perhaps want to be. It seems beneficial to all to at least give it a whirl not to mention it can be quite interesting!

M.J. I just love this poem because of its encouraging spirit. I like the way you use repetition to give a sense of keeping at something, and the way it builds to a climax, like a good story until fear has been conquered! The title is ironic because you really are a great poet who has put your own poem into real life. Great job!

We have nothing to fear, but fear itself, and that is so true too. Because if we live in fear, then we miss out on all the wonders and joys of the world. This piece has a real message with these lines.

Hope lies on the other side
Ready to embrace and support
Life's eternal goodness.

Thank you for sharing, Molly.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your sides constantly. With much love in my heaert, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your sister, Barbie

well...methinks the lady doeth protest to most certainly write good verse for someone who says they are not a poet. Whatever you decide to call yourself as a writer, I do hope you continue to write such delightful pieces as this.

Your talent is endless and I must mention...what you believe, as "not writing poetry", is not so...for you are a true poetess.

If you say so... but the not-a-poem struck a chord with me, so you must be able to write something close to poetry.

Inspiration comes when the muse it up to it sometimes. When I feel the need to write and the brain just can't engage I take a picture put it in the page and pull out the dictionary. Now I can cheat and use the one on desk top. Lady J
