Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 33: (BLIND) in the C rhyme line

Thought I’d try a new one, this week, Ronovan has a Decima challenge.

A different type of syllabic poetry, with a rhyming structure as well.

Décima poetry is a 10 line stanza with 8 syllables per line. The rhyming pattern is abbaaccddc. Using the 10 lines there are generally two ways to organize: The 10 lines, or breaking the 10 lines into two stanzas using abba/accddc.

This week, the prompt is Blind, and it needs to be used in one of the C lines.

Here goes….!

 Everything seems just so surreal
 When will this world begin to heal?
 Politics covering the truth
 Blaming the aged, and the youth
 We try to see, they just conceal
 I feel like I am going blind
 Maybe I am losing my mind
 My thoughts muddle with one another
 Feelings that I try to smother
 But it’s just life, the daily grind

    Nicely done. A take on the theme that was rolling around in this empty head of mine that I hadn’t considered. Politics was definitely the inspiration, I just wondered what people would do with it. Thank you so much for joining in with this and with the Haiku. It’s been way too long since one of my originals participated.

      I’ve been in a Pandemic fog, Ron, what with being in school, dealing with a new job, and all the pressures. But my writing mojo is getting there!

    The old and the young at not to be blamed. Poor leadership in Washington for 20 years. President Clinton, left no debt, few on welfare and a content USA. No wars. We will outlive the liars my dear friend. We are stronger than we know.

    It is a very confusing time indeed. Regular daily things but still not the normal and the confusion about the measures too. This all appears to me like a storm building up which may initiate big healing and calm after.
