Different Endings

Written for:  Poetings Bloomings2 – Prompt#215 – “And I Quote” – Installent #2
How is the impossible even possible? We wonder if we are capable to achieve great things because they seem daunting, haunting our every thought and action. “What’s the use?” we ask. We think we’re setting ourselves up for failure.

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, “I’m Possible!”
~Audrey Hepburn

But, take this quote from Audrey Hepburn, star of the silver screen and a World Ambassador. From humble beginnings, she rose to her status in films such as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “A Nun’s Story,” and “My Fair Lady,” to name a few. Once retired from acting, she took on the challenge presented by third world countries, focusing on the starving and sick children. Always charming, always a loving soul. For Audrey Hepburn, she made the impossible, possible.

So, what’s possible for you? What do you consider out of your league? What have you or do think you can achieve?? Write a “possible” poem. Or an “impossible” poem. Or a hopeful dream … something you’d like to do but haven’t yet. Something “bucket list” worthy. Impossible? Positively possible!

 

Next sand hill I occupy alone
in my dream, I fight
fear, sprout wings, fly
off that high peak. Stop.
End of dream.

Oh no! Lost again, wandering
this sad, sandy ground
with locked doors, hallway
mazes leading nowhere. Except,
now I walk tall–small me
who never can find the right
room, hallway, door–stride
up that long staircase, heels
clicking smartly.  With confidence
I step into my office, composed.
Stop. End of dream.
