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.

But – 

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:
