The Journey

A Poem by absmith

All though it's hard, you must move on
Become better
Count your loses
Demand respect
Eliminate the competition
Forgive but never forget
Give no mercy
Highest is the level in which you must possess
Include the steps in which it will take to get there
Jealousy is to be avoided along the way
Kindly decline the evil
Later for them to find out their
Mistakes
Never forget your past
Only because it makes you who you are
Quite often do people
Regret forgetting the past
Sadness is not an option
Time is of the essence
Until you realize your out
Very few realize
What is awaiting them when it's over
Xenium is not one of them
Yearning to know what the secret is we
Zip up the door of the unknown

I love the addition of Xenium. I don't know what it is and how it fits into the poem, but it breaks the pattern of the rest of the poem ( and others like it) and adds a hint of some larger work. Very cool. (Is it a reference to something?)

It's not a reference to anything, it just fit the style of this poem
This is very beautiful, this makes sense

"Kindly decline the evil
Later for them to find out their
Mistakes"

Thank you for making me feel so much better.

An alphabet of always applicable aphorisms... works quite well! Good job! I'm curious about the catalyst for your concept?

A really interesting poem. The letters at the first of each line form the alphabet. Good job!

creative ...impressive
Exquisite. It is easy, you see, to get stuck in the past as it is very seductive.Our past is clear and comfortable but should have the courage to face the present. And this is what takes you forward. You start believing in yourself and it gives you the delight that nothing else can give. Loved your poetry and keep writing.

I'm a teenager & almost everything I write has nothing to do with me. Now I know most people will argue and say that it isn't "good" writing unless it has a true feeling behind it but whatever, that'.. more..
