via Daily Prompt: Authentic

A Poem in response to the prompt- authentic :

 

You were meant to be wild

But you settled for mild

You were meant to be wicked and free

But you settled for being a chicken in a tree

You were meant to carve your own destiny

But you settled for everyone’s mediocrity

 

So

When you feel

A dull ache in your soul

A humming around your heart

A longing for something without a name

 

I would say, obey that call

Because it is a call

Of your authentic self

Of the part of you

That lives just beneath your skin

So finally

Let it have its way with you

 

Because

You were meant to be wild

You were meant to be free

And meant to carve your own destiny
