NaPoWriMo – Day 11 (Future)

Today’s National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) prompt is: Write a poem that addresses the future, answering the questions “What does y(our) future provide? What is your future state of mind? If you are a citizen of the “union” that is your body, what is your future “state of the union” address?”

Your tears, will create an ocean,
in which you will want to stay,
but your strength, will build a boat,
to sail away.



We’re like two boats,
you and me,
tethered together,
drifting empty.

But I rather cut loose,
than be lost with you.
We belong separately,
even in this churning sea.
