Enough is Enough


In June, I plan to explore writing the Acrostic Poem. I’ve played with this form of poetry in the past. I don’t know how I came up with the idea. It must have been a word experiment for me back in the day when I was playing with poetry. The definition of an Acrostic Poem is the first letter of each line should spell out a word or phrase vertically. This word or phrase plays the role of a theme or message. Also, this message can appear in the middle or end of the poem. Back in the day, I didn’t know I was participating in a style of poetry. My coming across the Acrostic poem design became a clever attempt at wordplay. My  Acrostic style of poetry for today is called Enough is Enough.

Enough is Enough

Entertaining drama of the daily toil and grind

Never enough to satisfy your hunger and greed

Ought to tell you all what’s on my feeble mind

Unrequited satisfaction of a yearning need

Gave you what I had, but I refused to bleed

Humiliated by the way you manipulated and defined

Is this all there is and should be?

Shouldn’t you have taken a second look at me?

Endeavoring to step off the great rollercoaster ride

Not persuaded to pay my admission a second time.

Outraged you never gave me a safe place to hide,

Underdog, who chose the diminished losing side.

Giving honest answers when I should have told a lie

Hoping I can make my escape and find a safe place to hide.

  1. 💜 Expectations Fuel or Drain “Enough” EveryOne; in My View, quoting ‘If’ a poem by Rudyard Kipling, both lack and abundance ARE “imposters”
