Think About Your Life

Written for:  April 2022 PAD Challenge - Day 7

"Write an abundance poem."

Often you don't appreciate
the copiousness of your life.
In youth, you believe you know strife
while joy weaves a quilt of featherweight.

You always had food on your plate.
Did you once have to sacrifice?
Often you don't appreciate
the copiousness of your life.

We now see people in a state
of destitution, with bombs rife.
Children are dying, husbands and wives.

How would you feel not to know your fate?
Often you don't appreciate.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
