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
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.
