who do you think you are


A very good question, asked by Marie Elena and Walt at Poetic Bloomings – Prompt #66


Mellow as a rotting melon

Arrogant beyond belief and reason

Raw and rigid as barbarian

Interested in plenty things, ignorant of most

Young in spirit, yawning all the time

Ambitious to leave a trace, futile.


Kilograms of tears, kilotons of explosion – all too easily spent

Outstanding when it comes to theory

Loving mainly herself

Enthusiastic to dive in regular depressions

Very hard to please, impossible to live with

After all that above, should we really care?

  1. An interesting post about yourself ~ I don’t think I can even begin to write for this prompt as I am full of contradictions ~

  2. Hi, Grace, thanks for stopping by. Well, initially I thought it would make a pitiful piece if I DID answer the prompt, but then I couldn’t help it. 🙂
    You should try it. And there will be more, as Marie Elena and Walt are promising a 20-week journey. I figured my lack of desire to write may be worn by the end of that period, and I might regret I didn’t start the project. You see, I’m so easily tricked in…
