I TRIED to write one of those un-rhymey poems that some people prefer. I just didn’t have it in me today

 

Easter Sunday (2021)

 

Up early

Received a song

In my native tongue 

From a foreign land

 

A child’s hallelujah 

Had me drowning in tears

Why I don’t even 

Really understand

 

Early awakened 

Clearly shaken 

I opened up the hollow 

Of Easter morning 

 

By noon 

I’m back under covers

Emotions on a holy day

Affect without warning 

 

Hiding in

The beat of memories 

Of music videos 

From a century past

 

With each refrain 

I experience pain

Wondering how much longer

I am going to last

 

Not that it matters 

I believe I’ve made my peace

For whatever that

May be worth 

 

It’s as clear

As this foggy day

That I’m nearer my death 

Than I am to my birth 

 

I’ve soared

And I’ve fallen 

But I’ve answered my call

And done what I can to heal

 

All things

Come to an end

So I ask you my friend 

Is it power

Or is it love

That is real

I admire your rhyme scheme and I, myself, can't or don't like to write a poem that doesn't rhyme.

I’m no Robert Service, but he wrote epic rhymes. I’m told that Booksie contest judges look more favorably on free verse...and if that’s their preference, God bless ‘em. But I don’t believe I’ll be entering anymore online poetry slams.
