I thought I’d try to write a poem, inspired by the poets I read on WordPress. Tell me what you think. Should I write another🤔?
I thought I knew me
But now I know I didn’t.
And you could do no better and know no more
For just when I was ready to reveal myself
I was gone and then come again .
But was it me I wonder as all was made new,
I’d reinvented and shed a skin
To try another life
To write a further chapter of the evolving tale.
I could never bore you as I present afresh
As a yet to be told tale
And live life anew until the persona jades and tarnishes
Then yet another fresh chapter for reading.
Lazarus died and came again
How was his perspective changed by those hours in the tomb?
Was he returned with sufficient knowledge to reinvent?
Had all that had gone before been training for all that was to come?
What does the last life that I declare done
Contribute to what lays ahead,
I will write this life anew,
Then I will know and do it again.
