Poem: Free Verse – “Never Say Never”#amwriting #poetry #GDGC

Never say never because you think I can’t,

Doesn’t mean I’ll never;

Or never will again.

Never say never, you’ll eat your words,

For I cannot except limitations,

Especially when they’re unsure.

Perhaps, I am usual, and change is difficult;

But every now and then I’ll throw a curve ball,

Just for my own glee;

Only to surprise you because what’s life without —

Spritely spontaneity.

I may have been easier in the past,

But I have strength you cannot conceive;

I have potential and possibility.

It’s not pride that’s hurt or my self unwilling to accept,

But your words, so sure —

Are a challenge, suppositions I won’t except.

Because in your life, you were willing to give in —

Doesn’t mean I will too.

And I will never stop pushing,

Because although I’m some of you,

A lot of me is me; and ‘never’ is a word,

Not in my vocabulary.

For life is full of ‘ifs and maybes,’

Times we must stop overthinking,

Not believing in never is always a choice.

So, fight because to stop would be —

To relinquish your will to live.

And never say never,

Your words will come back to haunt.

No one knows what’s tomorrow,

Or what fictitious assumptions turn into reality.

Hope is a beacon, it’s glow destroys —

The word ‘never’ and alights,

Minds open and diverse; all the —

Scintillating and infinite tomorrows that could,

And someday will be.

Never say never, never limit someone;

Don’t confine yourself.

Tomorrow is a misty veil,

The glass a sheen obsidian.

But hope and possibility —

They’re twinned together;

And they never say never,

The word is foreign to them,

So, should the word be buried,

Despair sunk in ocean trenches deep;

Lost in the depths of the secret sea.
