For Your Sake


 Do you run in place and pretend to complete

For fear, you’re failing to master the task

Don’t panic your manic and admit defeat

In this foolish world, it’s best to ask

Not hide drunken words behind a mask

 Either fake your brain or take a seat

Connect the dots and vow to compete

    Is there a specific name for the rhyming pattern used here? I am trying to connect the dots 🙂

      I don’t believe so, Reena. Perhaps, it leans toward being lyrical. I like my poems to be words that one can sing to. I just enjoy writing this way. Thank you for asking.

        You are right. Your poems have a rhythm.

    Wonderful, Eugenia. I wish completion were as easy as taking a vow, however – lol. Thanks for sharing on the Senior Salon or I might have missed this lovely.

    Eugenia, I will be pondering the first line of your poem all day. It is a very interesting thought.

      I hope it is a “good for the soul” pondering, Bernadette. 😉

        It is and was.
