amid the cacophony
of negativity and doubt
and show compassion
to your noble self
Here are the words and my poem for the twenty-eighth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.
This one was fun. I had all but one line done really fast. I set the poem aside during the week, busy with other things (namely all the cool stuff happening at the Melbourne Spoken Word & Poetry Festival) and then when I came back to it, the last line slotted neatly into place. If only all poems were this easy to write!
