Fear

What if when all is said and done
The things I leave amount to none?

What if I should depart this place
Without a trace of love or grace?

To go, my days being ill-spent here,
This is indeed my greatest fear.



Struggled with both my weekly themes this week and not knowing what to do, I came up with more words. I'm afraid I'm taking the easy option.
Needs must.
you brought it together well Helen

Who said this - it is familiar! Shakespeare? Love this contemplative photo!

@maggiemae Ha! I'm too lazy to pinch other people's poetry. I'd have to go looking for it. I just pull out the words from my head. It helps me work out what I am thinking!

@helenhall Well, you are a talented poet!

Your words and photographs fit together like hand in glove. Maybe this should be your weekly theme: write about and illustrate emotions. You have made a good start.

i wouldn't find poetry the easy option at all! i think your words are apt and eloquent and thought-provoking. and i think plenty of love and grace are to found just in your 365 presence, never mind about the rest of your life :)
