(by Sam/Cerca Trova)
I may
Yet I don't
I can
Yet I won't
Is it
Fear of change
That holds me back
Or faith in the future
That I lack
Is it
My haunting Doubts
Shadows of failures
I drag along
From the past
Is it
My own Inhibitions
The inner "No"
That halts me
From taking Decisions
Is it
The darkened road ahead
An unknown destination
A journey
Without an end
If only
I could know
I Want
To let go
I long to break free
Be able to flee
These towering walls
Of my imprisoning
Thank you, Sam, for your contribution poem... we are so honored!!

Forgive me, but I just realized my entry at #23 isn't quite in line with the theme.

Thank you for your lovely comment on my poem I wrote for Magpie Tales. I really enjoy poems even tho on my blogspot I write about anything that catches my fancy. I just love writing and that's all there is to it! I'm trying to write my first book but it's not easy and takes a lot of time! You have quite a website going on here I like it! Great job! Have a good week! ♥

Your poem was a great way to start potluck!Thanks Sam!

I'm done with my comments... but I wasn't sure where to confirm that...

Li said...

I'll be honest - the A to Z Challenge has worn me out. So this time around, instead of something fresh, afraid I'll have to post an oldie - but it's one I actually like! Hope you do too. Looking forward to reading some new blogs in the next day or so.

The Reason You Come said...

To those who are on Wordpress, I think my comments are going in your Spam folder. I have no idea why. I'm working my way through some of the entries here, and I've noticed that my comments disappear. "Comment awaiting moderation" doesn't appear either.

M. A. S. said...

Not really a new poem, but this one kind of fits the prompt. Thanks, JP, for a place to share it.

Linda Bob Grifins Brin Korbetis said...

The Reason You Come, sorry for what happened.

this happens to many of us at times,

you may try to use a new email ...

Jennie said...

I missed the official deadline, but if you want to read anyway, mine for the week is here.

JL Dodge said...

Hey Jingle, Want to thank you for the invite, I have been so busy lately that I forgot the deadline... I will try to keep it in mind for the next one !!
