NaPoWriMo 2018: Day 6

Cinquain

(“The first, fundamental form is a stanza of five lines of accentual verse, in which the lines comprise, in order, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 1 stresses…Then Crapsey decided to make the criterion a stanza of five lines of accentual-syllabic verse, in which the lines comprise, in order, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 1 stresses and 2, 4, 6, 8, and 2 syllables. Iambic feet were meant to be the standard for the cinquain, which made the dual criteria match perfectly. Some resource materials define classic cinquains as solely iambic, but that is not necessarily so.”) (source)

Think

Think

About the things

You don’t want to think of

That makes you question your reality

And change.

 

Stop

Running around

Chasing lies you believe

When the truth stands in front of you

Screaming

 

It’s priceless

To find the right

Buried among grey lines

Our world tells us is relative

Lies.

 

(I’m getting sick of people saying truth or right is relative. It’s not. So that idea inspired this poem. I have a feeling that the moods of my poem differ drastically because of how many things go through my head all the time. Sorry!)
