Alphabets Of A Lifetime

Alphabets Of A Lifetime

Artlessly waiting for the day my
Breakfast will be a full plate,
Cold clothes made from curtains will be
Ditched and dinner would be served for once.
Expectations, I’ve realized, are never met so I want my
Future independent of them.
Goals I aim for are small and insignificant so I
Hope hindrances won’t plague my way when
I break through the tainted glass of my
Jaded life.
Knowledge and education is what I was seeking but
Long lost happiness of mine is what I found.
My mistake I realized while
Navigating through the unjust and
Orthodox society was being born a girl in
Poverty. I’ve worked hard to
Quietly climb the ladder of education to find a job.
Roofless and rain drenched, the
Sleepless nights of my poor childhood
Trigger more strength in me, so I persevered through
Until I would succeed, and I did. The
Vibrant pains of the past are gone and
With them my sorrows. Now I have a
Xenial calm with my past and my present.The future is
Yet to come but I know I’ll have great
Zeal in pursuing my only desire ; happiness.

~In celebration of 2 years of InkSoakedSoul, here’s an acrostic .

I’ve been wanting to try out acrostic poetry and this is the result of my first attempt. I only wanted all the alphabets to be spelled out in sequence through my piece but unconsciously I ended up weaving a story in the piece itself.

Tell me what you feel about it. =)

I tried to write something different on my first blog birthday too. Here’s a link to my posts from exactly a year ago, when InkSoakedSoul turned one year old.

2. You’re Human

Happy Blogging!

  2. Hey M!
    First of all, wishing you and your blog the happiest birthday! I am so delighted that I have seen the growth of this two-year-old baby.
    Second of all, this piece is so uplifting and awe-spiring that it brought an ear to ear smile on my face. The art of your storytelling is truly spellbinding. The optimistic theme truly reflects in your words.
    The territories of acoustic poetry have been unchartered for me as yet but I can say it with pride that I know one acoustic poetry which is:
    D-Drop in the Ocean written by Mr. Worldwide Handsome

    I hope you have years of blog anniversaries and I am there to witness your success as a writer, a storyteller.
    Keep Writing!
    Happy Fangirling, Fellow ARMY!

    1. AH E!
      “Thank you” doesn’t even sum up ahhhhh.
      Your words are literally a huge motivation for me to keep on writing. The way you describe my pieces, truly, maybe even I’d never be able to describe them that way.
      It amazes me how much you understand what I write exactly the way I would understand it.

      These 2 years wouldn’t have been anything without your support and encouragement.
      Thank you so much πŸ’œ

      ALSO THAT Acrostic POEM IS LE-JIN-DARY πŸ˜‰πŸ’œ

  3. Heyo.

    Happy late-blog-birthday! As a birthday wish, I’d like to tell you to keep writing because you are doing it in a really good way.

    The poem is really creative, and it makes to read itself. I’m sorry about the gloomy past, but the most beaming art gets birth in ashes. πŸŒΉπŸ’™πŸ€—

    1. Hallo!
      Thank you so much! (◍‒ᴗ‒◍)
      Feedback like yours indeed motivates me to keep writing, so thank you! =)
      I’m so happy you liked this piece. For the girl in the poem, the past indeed seems gloomy but I absolutely agree with what you’ve so beautifully worded, the most beaming art gets birth in ashes!
