leaving

by damommza & sunovawot

I once had a daughter
who lived by the water
and wanted to conquer the sea

“I won’t need a boat
because I can float
and take my belongings with me”

as soon as she started
the water, it parted
and she sunk right down to sand

Says she, “then I’ll fly”
and leapt towards the sky
but it did not go as she planned

“Then I’ll try another
If I stay here, I’ll smother”
and turned her blue eyes to the road

“Land, sea, or air,
I really don’t care,”
then on to the highway she strode

with her bag on her back
she followed the track
in search of wisdom and wealth

but what a surprise
when before her eyes
the road circled back on itself

    • I don’t know, I’ve been going round in circles for years. Admittedly you don’t get anywhere, but it’s a good way to avoid surprises πŸ˜€

  4. Love this one!
    I was just talking about when i left home 40 years ago to my friend today, only you two make it sound so adorable. As though my dad had written it about me, if he could’ve been unburdoned from 40 years at the steel and a nagging wife… Whoops! lets not go there.
    GREAT POETRY! Thanks sunovawot and damommza. The similarities made me gasp and laugh out loud!!! πŸ™‚

      Than you adaein3! This poem made me laugh even as I was writing it, but sunovawot’s ending was the icing on the cake! It started out with the thought..”no matter where I go..there I am” and morphed in to this!
