Instruction Manual: How to stay safe

Eye the world with wonder.

Envy beautiful things.

View others take that leap of faith

while you watch from the side-linings.

 

 

NaPoWriMo 2019 Day 1: Instruction Manual

a poem for my flames of fear

 

On a good day I see in the flames

a dancing horse, swishing tail

head upright, ears aloft,

prancing to the heat of the fire,

soul alight with joy.

 

On a bad day I see in the flames

a devilish anger that burns down

all my hard work, a ghoulish glee

that turns my dreams to ash,

hope depleted, plans destroyed.
