Pirouette

Pirouette

A Poem by Viktoria
"

The war on self belief...

"
I hear the tanks of pessimism
rumbling across my border
an invasion force of Panzer doubts
hell-bent on all disorder -

firing shells at my self belief
grenades tossed towards my heart
propaganda lies of Goebbels size
to dissuade me from my art -

I have no rifle to fight my foe
no Spitfire to defend my skies
just the taunting voice of failure
to propel me towards my prize -

so I close my eyes, grasp my BAR(re)
expel defeat from lungs astray
and I pirouette and pirouette
and pirouette myself away.

I think its excellent. I like how you mingle real life invasion with your own self belief. Keep up with your goals and your writings too! You have talent i see. You should try and write a little (at least) 4 or 5 days a week. It will surprise you what you will get done in your writes.

This is the war hardest won! Going by this poem, I'd think you are equipped to win any war! Your metaphors, imagery, rhyming and message are all beyond great. The 3rd verse is stunning! Loved it. Lucky to be reading you today for my daily dose of inspiration, Ms. Viktoria
