poem 27

Number 27
Acrostic poem
Choose a title/subject
Write a poem where the first letter of each line spells out the title/subject

the way its come to pass
horrified by change and the
equilibrium of stagnation
some call it amazing this
magnificent marching against the current
abandoning security for the
rushing of waves and
the crushing of bones as our compatriots
engage in direct battle against the current
sharper minds know that abstract attacks are key
theoretical models of bloody battles
maintain faith, pride, and spirit
over time we learn to survive and
navigate the stream in our own direction
keeping the course that we have chosen
evolving as we survive

yes, tomorrow is another day
