 Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 22 poem

Week 22 words from @beiteshai: God, density, mother, letting, response.

 

the density of faith

a mystery

an incalculable and infinite

weight of belief

shrouded in divinity

~

mother God heed my prayer

my response to this despair

letting the pain bleed into wine

and none to bear

Here are the words and my poem for the twenty-second week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

After throwing off my self-imposed constraints for using the random words in my poems, I'm feeling liberated and creative. Before the revolution, I was questioning everything about the challenge. Was I crazy to try and write a poem a week? Did I lack the commitment needed to stick with such a massive undertaking? Was I just too flightly to see it through? All sorts of fearful and doubtful thoughts were running around my brain.

But now? Oh now. I feel great. On top of the world. Ready to take on any words that come my way. So throw them at me. Send me a curve ball or two. I'm ready for them!

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account (@indraniperera) where I post the words for the week on Mondays (mostly) in my story. Write a poem and post it. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub. If you're not on Instagram, post your finished poem in the comments below so we can all read your masterpiece. 

If you don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll write a poem with them. Either dm me on Instagram with the words or put them in the comments box below.

Happy writing!
