[NaPoWriMo Poetry- 9] “A Turtle”

When I sense peril,

I crawl back into my shell,

Hide myself.

For this they say,

I am just a turtle.

Slow, weak and vulnerable.

Can’t walk across the horizon,

Can’t challenge the world;they say.

But my darkness ends at dawn,

cause for every seeker there’s a win.

I will walk towards mine,

if not, I will crawl.

But will keep moving.


About National Poetry Writing Month : #NaPoWriMo is a creative writing project held annually in April in which participants attempt to write a poem each day for one month. This year in 2019 I will attempt to complete this challenge of 30 poems in the month of April. Please keep reading and supporting. Wish me luck !
