Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

Thrust forward

To the march

Mediocrity is like starch

Fake and durable

It’s time to let it go


I pick up my sword

Ready for battle

Victory is like lavender

It’s time to make you whole

Sweet and fragrant in the grass below

(C) Carly Wiggins 2018


Do you find life can be mediocre at times? What do you to “spice up your life?” And was there a  particular line that stood out to you in this poem? 🙂
