it's a risk to live life; every step a person takes could lead to tragedy, suffering, pain. men shall always know strife; diseases; deaths; hurts, heartbreaks; these horrors have driven people insane. newborns given no choice; parents choose to bring them forth, hoping they will find our hard world humane. at their cries we rejoice when they join us here on earth... though happiness ~ is hardly preordained.
A d’Verse poetics prompt:
Take a risk!
At d’Verse, we were encouraged to explore the theme of risk. Possibilities included –
- tackling difficult subjects;
- laying bare a personal struggle in vivid detail;
- writing on any topic as long the word “risk” is used (perhaps the risk we take falling in love);
- exploring a new writing form that you may find “risky” or unconventional
