NaPoWriMo Cento

Here we are – Day 2. Day 1′s poetry went off without a hitch. Today is promising to be equally fruitful. Over at NaPoWriMo, we are being asked to write a poem that tells a lie or is made up of all lies.

I will admit that this is not the most fluid poem I have ever written. It is somewhat stunted as all lies are in the eventuality of time.

Original Lie

By: Meena Rose

No.
Stop.
You can’t.
You won’t.
You are just not good enough.

Stop right now.
I will tell on you – you’re
Not good enough;
A dreamer – devoid of
Reality, actually you’re emotional;

Yes. That is it.
That is exactly why
You must color inside the line;
Keep looking straight ahead -
Walk the straight and narrow

On a proscribed path which
Offers no detours or bypasses;
A path of confined mediocrity
In the name of human advancement.
Conformance.
