On Weekly Prompts, the Weekend Challenge is: Fork In The Road , please go over and visit their fabulous site by clincking >> Here . The poem “Either Way” below is my response to their prompt
At this point in time
Do you feel we have lost our way?
Our spinning world of rhyme
Is one big rotting orb of grime
Our life’s a journey
A climb up into the light
Or a fall into Hades
Either way, over time
Has existence become jaded?
We wait for a calming serenade
From above dark clouds full of pain
Us mere mortals need a different space
If our dreams are to ascend beyond this place
