But don’t chastise me
don’t ostracize me

but don’t write me off
don’t brandise me

that your words
energize me
they stir and
creates a fire inside

Summarise this
for you
don’t dare to pull my strings
don’t terrorize me
with you foolish antics
you don’t realize me

that I’m the eternal
the seed of
creation and destruction
make perfect sense
for your annihilation
don’t you categorize me

  2. Beautiful use of assonance. I love that you employ a multitude of literary devices. I am kind of a poetry nerd so I am a HUGE fan of any work that uses a lot of figurative devices and you, my friend, use them well. Thanks for sharing!

      1. You are welcome. I am sure you have. I am an avid reader, too. I studied poetry in university and have taught poetry classes over the years. That was a long time ago, though 🙂 Again, you have a true, natural gift.

      2. I agree. I grow a lot of my own vegetables and berries. I am lucky to live in a place where there are lots of wild blueberries, blackberries, partridgeberries and strawberries. Also have a couple of wild apple trees in my garden. I set up my greenhouse today, too. So I am all ready for the season 🙂
