In poetry and to find answers of who we are while walking the ephemeral road upon cracks of pain signs leading you.
The first mistake
A band of soldiers finds diplomacy in the dreg forest comes with consequences.
Willpower

Willpower

A Poem by Tabby Mac

They are in the shadows
Watching, waiting, anticipating
Lurking, searching
Looking to pounce
But, not in a hurry
Slowly and surely
A confident stride
As they step inside
When your lonely, or not your best
When you see a pretty lady or handsome gent
When another has what you expect
When you lack someone's respect
That's when they take their chance
That's when they start their dance
Once in your head like a fast sprouting seed
They marinate,
Then multiply,
They start to succeed
Deeper and deeper they take you
How far sometimes one never knows
Before its too late that is
When a one night stand finds you alone
Or your marriage is broken as well as your home
A friend is lost
And at what cost?
A thought wouldn't you say?
That is how it all started...
This dismay.
Can we give ourselves that much credit?
To think such things even when we had never said it?
Where was the thought birthed?
That is my question?
And how did it lead into action?
I am implying. Yes, you are right.
What if these thoughts are brought on by
Well...let's call them sprites
Silly yes,
maybe absurd...
Call it then a little bird!
Something had to plant it there!!
It's like it appeared out of no where!
But either way I think we can agree...
That, a stronger mind there must be!

Yes, that little inner voice, incessantly whispering, nagging away and grows stronger as our confidence and self esteem gradually ebbs, knowing these negative emotions can prevent us from fully maximising our potential!

Grasp the nettle and have faith in your ability, the surefire way to exorcise those irksome demons, they will soon move on and 'bug' someone else!

A fine philosophical, character building poem, superb indeed my friend!

I think the way to deal with thoughts is to just let them be, and not break our heads thinking where they would have come from.

It sounds as though you own your experiences. You put this across well in your poem. But I think you should 'own' those little sprites too, and tell them where to go!

wonderful poem !! people do tend to find moments in your life where its easiest for them to bring you down. destroy your morale and make you feel like nothing. one must be strong enough to not let things get them down and adopt a willpower as strong as their desire. i feel this on a personal level. going through a rough patch in life. needed nice motivational writes to cheer me up

Seems the water fairy slipped something nasty into your drinking urn! Reading down through an interlacing of poetic imagery of broken trust, a questioning of blind attention to the amiss happening around you; all theses emotional facets poignantly penned into a touching write … :-)

'To think such things even when we had never said it?
Where was the thought birthed?
That is my question?
And how did it lead into action? '

Life is said to be three quarters thought and the other quarter is action or procrastination!!!! Perhaps that really how it is, not doing this, doing too much of that. Will power, keeping firm, taking a stand isn't possible - unless one is tennty foot statue. Humans are vunerable.. we have to live with it.. just as we have to live with our weaknesses OR shout from the rooftops! . Perhaps.

Your poem is finely written, full of fleeting scenes, thoughts and hints.. Your sprites have guided your hand to invite thoughts and opinions from readers.. and seems they have.. hopefully in my case, not too much!!!

Nice poem on willpower in which you expressed your own though based on what you have experienced the life around your. You also put some questions in the poem which like. Moreover, I consider it a poem filled with true emotions and feelings. Thank you, Tabby for sharing such nice piece.
