NaPoWriMo Day 12 – How High I Can Really Be

I am a bit late with my NaPoWriMo poem today but I have still made it! It’s been a manic week and I feel a little bit out of myself this evening trying to regroup my thoughts and the massive life changing things that are currently happening. I wrote the following from the heart in just 5 minutes.

How High I Can Really Be

Nothing, barren, all around

Sometimes lost, sometimes found

Pick myself up off the ground

Whatever, please don’t make a sound


I always thought that I was blind

But now there is a way to find

What I held within my mind

Leave the bloody past behind


You can raise me up to see

How high I can really be

So all I ask, please come to me

At no cost, no added fee

    Vicky, this poem was just what I needed to read this morning. It spoke to me directly because of a couple of things that have happened recently. Thank you for sticking to NaPoWriMo despite everything that’s going on over there! Good luck with it all. x
