Today is a different kind of post. I decided I’m game for the OctPoWriMo prompt for today. The challenge was an audio or video performance of one our original poems.
For this challenge, I used an old free verse poem I have written, called “Tree“.
The lines/lyrics are as follows (modified slightly from the original poem):
I lean on you like a sturdy tree
Spreading your branches, envelop me
Tears wiped away with tender leaves
The more I struggle, the tighter you hold me
I fall asleep like a child under your shade
You never let sunlight scorch my face
Harsh realities chased so far away
You whisper over and over that it will be okay
This is the first time I’m posting an audio link, please let me know if you can’t hear it or if you face any other problems with the link.
Also, let me know what you think! :p
