This poem was inspired by a writing prompt on Threads. I’ll share a link to my Threads profile at the bottom of this post.
What if I was right?
What if I was right about what I am destined to evoke?
What if I’m not just an ingrate who went rogue?
It is true that I had to plummet to fathoms of myself
that I didn’t know existed
but what if I was honest within babbles
and confessions of gibberish –
What if what I insisted
really did take place?
What if I am not a disgrace?
True, I had a glut of excuses at the start –
trauma can’t be the reason I deplete me.
What if it’s too late
for a clean slate?
I refuse to turn back now.
Thank you for viewing. Here’s a link to my Threads account. I must say that this app has also been resourceful when it comes to connecting with the writing/poetry community:
