NaPoWriMo Day 1 Results

The Pillar of Faith
by T J Therien

Trying to cipher purpose and meaning
From every experience, hurt and heartache
In each of life’s lessons gleaning
What can only be learned by mistake
What can only be taught when unlearned
It’s a colloquial paradox
In spite of all the knowledge earned
The keys held don’t fit the locks
The doors opened go no-where
The mind devolves into confusion
So to avoid nihilistic despair
We fabricate and foster an illusion

    1. Thank you. All is status quo. NaPo is a stupid bet I’m having with myself. I want to prove I can still perform poetically now I’ve graduated to trying my hand at prose. Hope all is well with you.

      1. I’d say you can perform poetically as ever, and it can only get better, if you arch yourself to speak that way . And hey, whatever happens, you win 🙂
