Amidst all of the hullabaloo

Our dreams may be extinguished

But, as individuals we are distinguished

By how we pen our own chapter

Our bare souls not to be captured

By a spell, thus false feeling rapture

Mapping our journey to our destinations

May save us from shocking revelations




The Writer’s Quote Challenge is a weekly event. Each Thursday, the hostess(es) will post a weekly prompt. Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration

    “Our bare souls not to be captured” inspires a lot more, beyond the scope of this challenge. Beautiful choice of words. And ‘shocking revelations’ points to the obvious in contemporary history. You have captured so much in a few lines. My compliments!

    Wonderfully penned, I like the choice of your words, and yes map it well and plan, it’s better knowing your route to your destination than facing disappointments.

    This captured the state the world is in. It seems we are all waiting to be saved. We need to take personal responsibility for life and our contribution to it. Wonderful and reflective, Eugenia 🙂 x

      Thank you so much, Daisy. I am saddened to hear about Jennifer. We must live each day like there is no tomorrow.

    How true it is. We so often forget to take responsibility for our destinations. Nice read.

    Great poem! I also love the flower in the picture. Did you make that?

    • 01/08/2017 at 3:59 pm

      Thank you and no, I did not make the flower. I wish I had the talent to create the flower. 🙂 I use a lot of images via, which is a public domain and the images are free.

        Thanks Eugenia! I’m always looking for a place to find good pictures without stepping on people’s toes!
