Na/GloPoWriMo 2019 Day 11 Prompt: Not one of my favorites, prompts: SERIOUSLY Do They think everyone has a life- even a crappy one, that you can express in a beautifully crafted poem? :We’d like to challenge you to write a poem of origin. Where are you from? Not just geographically, but emotionally, physically, spiritually? Maybe you are from Vikings and the sea and diet coke and angry gulls in parking lots. Maybe you are from gentle hills and angry mothers and dust disappearing down an unpaved road. And having come from there, where are you now?
I came from nothing
I going nowhere
I am from the worst house on the street
surrounded by fences topped with
jagged barbs called ‘words’.
I am from the town of
‘Settled For Less”
hidden in the county of
” Good For Nothing.”
I came from nowhere
and I am going nowhere
that’s where I am from
and that’s where I will stay.

We had a similar idea about town and county 🙂 Nice.
Relying on my Jeep’s GPS got into my head, didn’t it😂
This was certainly a good read:)
I agree. You’re going places when you can write as well as you do. Well done.
Being honest in art is hard, you can dress up the ugliness and enter it in a beauty contest and win.
Or you can leave it as it is- ugly but beautiful in its own true way
You know, spite can produce some pretty good poetry. =P I actually really liked this one. It’s simple, but very effective.
Simple usually is 😉
