NaPoWriMo Day 25 ~ Anaphora

The prompt today at NaPoWriMo is to write a poem that uses anaphora. The definition at the NaPoWriMo site is:
“a literary term for the practice of repeating certain words or phrases at the beginning of multiple clauses or, in the case of a poem, multiple lines”.

Are We There Yet?

Still yourself…arrive
When will you find your niche in life?
When you do what you love, you’ll find yourself there

When will the money start to roll in?
When you stop obsessing over what you lack

When will the boss recognize you and all that you do?
When you stop jumping up and down, practically shouting look at me

When does family start appreciating you as you are?
When you realize that it doesn’t matter what they think

When will true love come my way?
When you understand that love comes from within and not without

When are you going to give me a straight answer?
When you can finally see, that for the answers you don’t need me

When will you get to where you want to be?
When you discover that the destination is in your own heart
Still yourself…arrive

  1. And another one I need to read every day!
    When will true love come my way?
    When you understand that love comes from within and not without – yes very true but OMG, so hard.

    Well done Tracy, if you aren’t a famous poet in a minute I shall eat my hat, gloves, scarf and maybe even shoes. 🙂

    • Tell me about it Jules! I know. A lot of my stuff serves as a reminder to myself too. This is a tough one, but we can do it.

      Ha! If I don’t make it into the upper echelon please don’t eat all that stuff. Would hate for you to be cold. 😉
