'Free From Things' - 100 Day Poetry Contest Day 99

4년 전

Wow!! We're almost there... day 99 of the 100 day steemit poetry contest.... Madness!

Yes that's right... we're almost there! In fact... I think officially today is the last day of the contest, and I may be a day behind... I've kinda lost my bearings recently!

But.. I got there, to almost 100 poems, and tomorrow I will personally officially finish what has been an epic journey and such an amazing contest. Thank you so much to @d-pend and @steemitschool for making this a reality... it's been incredible for all of us!

Recently, after getting home from travels with not much, selling as much of what I do have as possible, fumbling around doing odd jobs, floating around from one sofa to the next, starting to feel kinda... stressed.. but not forgetting of course that I am... totally blessed.

But I must confess,

The past 70 odd days have been pretty intense, returning home with nothing and trying to keep this whole contest up the whole way. I recently had my bag stolen, which had pretty much all my stuff in it (thankfully not my laptop :D ) and I'm really at ground 0 right now for the first time in many many years.

So it's weird, but I feel kinda free-er than ever

With Love

Free From Things

I broke free...
Free from the things that I owned,
That actually owned me.
To these…
Possessions -
Obsession -

Material trinkets...
The weight of the ship,
Will eventually sink it.
A bird trying to fly...
With tar in it’s wings.
Gravity Pulls -
Exhausted birds will not sing.

Owning so much,
Was tiring me out.
I want to move on -
So they had to move out.
Then the bits that I saved,
The things I thought I should keep,
We’re suddenly taken from me...
Now I’m totally free.
