poem-ready December 31, 2014

She’s reached the end of her rope

and she’s swinging hard,

pumping her legs for maximum height,

fury fueling her flight.

She’s aiming for the edge

she’s leaping into space

and she’s grabbing on the way down.

When she lands,

she’s crushing injustice beneath her feet.

and throwing up her hands,

in victory.



Been editing tonight.  Just getting to the end of the story, when the downtrodden heroine seizes power… 😉

    • Thank you for the compliment, Ashley.
      Practice makes perfect. Read lots of poets, study their styles, mimic their styles, and eventually your own voice emerges to craft your message uniquely.
      Best wishes in the new year! Good luck with your college courses!
