Poetry 365 Challenge: A Poem A Day - 2015

I started this on Inkvite, then Wattpad, now I'm trying out Movellas!

There is no real prize as such, just the adventure of expression, and bettering ourselves as writers.

I'm no poetry expert but used to enjoy writing poems in school. So thought this could be fun and a good way of improving writing skills.

There are no major rules, you can write in any style of poetry you like, as long and short as you like.

I will set set various topics or themes, but again, you can follow your own path if they don't appeal to you.

For example, I think the first poem we write should be on the theme of "New Year's Resolutions" posted on 1st Jan 2015.

I will post the current theme at the top of this page regularly.

Hope you guys like this idea please leave comments letting me know if you support it.

Please share on social media and with your followers if you feel so inclined.

I'm going to use the tag 365 in this so we can find each other's work.

Note: my poems are only semi-biographical!

38. 7th Feb: State Of Decay

Date: Saturday 7th February 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: State Of Decay

Burnt out buildings

Crumbling institutions

Unlimited borrowing

National debts that can never be repaid

State of decay

Hollow people

Shallow friendships

Meaningless encounters

Vanity is king in the world of the selfish

State of decay

Work hard

Pay debts

Then die

Over fed and under read

State of decay

Hurricanes keep on growing

Sea levels keep on rising

Temperatures keep on soaring

There'll come an end for many in this state

State of decay
