Hello again! Time is running out to get to the nitty-gritty task of posting some of the backlogged, journal-jotted poems for NaPoWriMo – and believe me, writing 30 poems in 30 days IS a challenge! More so than I thought it would be, and I am looking forward to staring the writing course I have signed up for – but best I keep to one thing at a time. I have tried to keep to the NaPoWriMo blog’s optional prompts, but there were a couple that I decided against and did my own thing for… Again, I hope you enjoy my musings!
Today’s Prompt: Write a Persona Poem (a poem written in the voice of someone else such as a superhero, super-villain – or God!) This was super-hard!
By Angel Dawson
I see them rushing as I watch from Heaven,
Billions of people, afraid and forlorn.
So many think that I do not love them,
Yet their pain and suffering leave my heart torn.
Spread the love,, lose the greed, forget hate, plant a seed
Of caring and giving, share some joy, fill a need.
Yes, those who are at peace with their lot in life,
They’ve found me and I’m so grateful they have.
Then there are those who plan nothing but strife,
My son gave his life, yet they remain brats.
Heal the earth, fear ye not, can’t you see all you’ve got?
I gave you a world, you’re ruining the lot…
They tire me out with their wants, schemes and demands –
Those with the most seem to want even more.
And they rarely follow my few commands,
Being God to these folks leaves me quite heartsore…
