PAD Day 1 – Resistance

So we’re OFF!  Sprinting towards a goal of creativity, camaraderie and blessed structure with fellow poets of all shapes, sizes and colors (oh, you just KNOW you’re all colorful!). 

Join in if you want and add a link to your own in the comments if you dare!  Most important – have fun with it.  You’re not required to do one every single there; Lord knows I probably won’t do ALL of them.  It’s the effort and the creative sparks that count.  😉

Props to “mitchsteve” for joining in the festivities.  His work is divine… (as are his descriptive terms)  😀

So here is today’s challenge from Poetic Asides. Today’s prompt uses the theme of resistance:


EIGHT HOURS FOR EIGHT YEARS

Far and beyond the keyboard click

Mind wanders to where a better deal might lie

The infinite searches keep attention locked

It’s a roadblock to self-improvement

To the movement beyond the click and carry

To above and beyond the daily tarry

Keeping me pinned to the same old shtick

The endless loop searches causing hope to belie

the predicament of self-sabotage keeping attention locked

in the where and why and the stuck in ordinary

About LVital7019

Just your normal, everyday 9-5er. An uninspiring position in an inspirational non-profit moves me to constant goof-offery; aimless, on-the-job procrastination; a crankiness that borders on psychosis; and attempting to craft something meaningful with words. Just another so-called-job inspiring someone to feats of insanity with a hint of creativity... (Insert demonic laugh HERE.) View all posts by LVital7019
