OctPoWriMo #10 – Success (poem)

Today’s prompt was to sing about our successes… I recently passed some significant (for me) milestones in terms of numbers reading this blog, so I thought about writing about that. But having also come across both blogs that have amazing poetry (and hardly any likes) and some blogs that have nothing but awful, incomprehensible doggerel (and a bizarre number ofΒ likes), I’ve decided to take a different tack. BTW – if I’ve visited your blog more than once, the latter is not aimed at you!

 

Made it to some milestones
For followers and views
But that’s no validation
For the poetic path I choose

So I won’t share those numbers:
They’re personal to me.
No need to brag and boast
About my vanity

I’m not playing the numbers game
So thanks for your attention.
Success is individual.
Not a competition

  1. Yes, we don’t write for the numbers, but from time to time, our vanity appreciates to see that they aren’t awful, or that we’re progressing in these numbers as well as in our ability!
    Beautiful!
