In the midst of objection
Channels affection to the meaningless
And attention to the profitless
The feelings that envelope
The optimism that elopes
Succumb to the fear of annihilation
And the distress of renunciation
The silence of withdrawal
Reaches out to the voice of laxity
The utterance of affinity
Fetches an audience of insensitivity
The leaf that floats on the river of desolation
Hitches on the rock of expectation
Exalting its feet of abjection
Magnifying its air of inclination.
Well, this is my first ever poem I’m writing after I had inspiration from Jess, Obed and Josephine. I never thought of writing a poem in the first place. I know it’s not masterclass and there are a lot of rhyming words blinding the theme. I think it’s an effort, I tried! I’m hoping my next poems would be better than this one.
Feel free to correct and shape this poem because I’m still in the learning process.
