Poetry challenge - day 21

  And here we are, on the last day of my challenge, after I managed to tap into my creativity and write at least one poem every day. It was an interesting experience, and I hope I make some new friends by doing it. Sometimes in the near future, I will try again, this time with short stories, in order to improve my writing skills. As for today, I need to remind myself that every end leads to a new beginning. It was an honor to take this journey with you all.


Day by day (24.10.2022)

Speed, this is what will define,
this generation,
fast cars, fast food, no time
at all, I'm on a call,

What kind of fool
are you, my friend,
to watch a leaf drop
until the end.

You used to stare at stars
at night, but now
a screen is all
your sight.

It's time to go back
to basics, to slack,
to make a cake
Did you know how to bake?

To ride a horse?
What am I? A Norse
God, period.

Every generation has
its ways, Mike said.
And, I do not know how
to drive a Moped.

With all that drama,
still living with my mama,
going to work,
not having my own fork.

The sky is the limit,
my dad used to say,
long before Laika the dog
went to the moon, and stayed that way.

Everything changed for a reason,
it is better when the reason is you.
We were dreaming to change the world,
but the world changed us.
