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!

Title: #TMRO

Riding high for #TMRO

Spreading out from our Earth

Populating new worlds

Striving forward for all we're worth

A new space race has begun

A silent explosion of new progress

Private companies soaring to orbit

Without much help from congress

Do we push forward to Mars?

Or do we go back to The Moon?

Shortly we'll be mining asteroids

Space tourism will happen soon

Our world is dying

Whether we like it or not

Survival is dependent on expansion

Otherwise we're doomed to rot

Humanity cannot bury it's head

It's time to leave the nest

There are many with vision and drive

To make our future the best

So I'm riding high for #TMRO

Full of hope that we'll survive

Watching the technology develop

Seeing humanity strive
