Reversal of Fortune

written by: Anne G



Reversal of fortune

expectation denied

a change of direction

time to reset

Plans forged with love

drowning in dread

lofty intentions

now nearly dead

Momentum abandoned

the cogs turned to rust

voices not distant

"Go big or go bust"

Reversal of fortune

misfortune bled

decisions and choices

the best lies ahead

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
