A Little Bit Of Hope - Poem by Dexsta Ray

Fortification
Trouble knocked upon the door and was waiting
For every new accomplishment
This was the compensation
I've confiscated every negative approach
Thrown into the furnace
And then politely off the boat
Couldn't stand to watch it smoke
Some choke at the thought of confusion
But what it all boils down to
Lost in illusions
Cause' if you thought you were losing
Then what else should you expect?
Debt dictated mind
All she could do was stress
Be vexed
Like the Law of Attraction was just a joke
Pray daily
You can't get what you're asking without some hope

    Strong poem that flows through various sensations using the staccato and unexpected rhyme to pull it together. Very visceral, intelligent poetry. (Report)Reply

    Cause' if you thought you were losing
    Then what else should you expect?
    Debt dictated mind
    All she could do was stress
    Be vexed
    Like the Law of Attraction was just a joke
    Pray daily
