#WednesdayVerses : Reach for the sky

reach for the sky

I know that one day,
I’ll reach for the sky.
I know that it is a long way,
Yet I will try!


My dreams guide me on,
When my struggles bring me down.
But like the darkness before dawn,
With rays of the sun, it will be gone.


Problems and setbacks will come my way,
But I believe that I’ve the strength to face them all.
My demons I will slay,
I’ll get up each time I fall.


I get closer to my goal each day,
And one day my dreams will all be true.
I will reach for the sky,
When to my inhibitions, I’ll bid adieu.





As part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018,ย Vinayย and I have started this weekly prompt which weโ€™ve decided to call as Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, weโ€™ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. Please add your post links to the linky only if you have written for the prompt. We are happy to have you rhyme with us.

Prompt #9 is our first picture prompt. Use the picture in this post to inspire your poem.
