There is no doubt about the fact that Paper controls people’s lives in this day and age, whether it’s an official document or an official bank note. Interpret this theme in this week’s poem or short story.
Examples of life-determining papers: birth & death certificates, passports, degrees, contracts, legal documents of any kind, money/cheques…etc.
Fear is a warning
A signal to stop and think
Reassess your life
A strong stabbing pain
Growing over time
A paralysing feeling
Hiding true meaning
Trusting your instinct
Will kill the horror within
Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge
The line between what is real and what is not is blurred and faded away
Thus the demons and doubts in my head decided to come out and play
As they run around, I sit here on this silent night and pray and pray
Wishing that God would hear my prayer and save my soul today
For these fears and anxieties are driving me insane in every way
And the darkness has consumed my all, leaving behind ashes of grey
But I still dream of a future not too far, one that’s here to stay
So I continue to plead in prayer “Dear God, please return what has been taken away”
And once again I hope they’re heard, for the madness I cannot delay
