Poetry Prompt #2

For this Poetry Prompt post, I decided to do my own prompt, and see what comes of it. I’ve been watching a lot of Doctor Who lately (Specifically the Matt Smith seasons) and I wanted to look through some of his quotes on the show, because I love quotes, what can I say 🤷‍♂️

During my search, I found this quote from Matt Smith’s last episode as the Doctor, right before he regenerates:

It made me think some things, feel some things… and then eventually write some things 😂

So here is a poem based on the previous quote, enjoy!

Remember the past,

Of being a child,

Dreaming of growing up?

Remember the hope,

That lived in your heart,

Thinking of what your future holds?

Whatever happened,

To that childlike curiosity?

Where did it all go,

That hope of a happy ending?

Is it really gone,

Or did we choose,

To pretend it can’t exist?

It’s easy to fixate on the present,

Become too wrapped up,

In the monotony,

Of our daily lives.

It’s easy to drown in the past,

To relive what has been,

In fear of the future.

It’s easy to obsess over the future,

And forget about where you are now.

We need to honor who we were,

Who we are now,

And who we will be,

But not get trapped,

Or dwell,

On what we cannot change.

Thank you for reading, and I will see you tomorrow with a new post!

-Erin 🙂
