Weds poetry prompt: In Fear of Innovation

Road sign of new life and old life

Today’s prompt :Write an ‘evacuation’ poem

In Fear of Innovation

Searching for motivation,
Slipping and falling into
These so-called situations,
Caught in life’s trap
Without slightest notion
Of how and why we got here.

These same old streets,
Same stilted conversations
Soon imbed in tired minds
The seed of frustration.
That cell so real, we soon forget
It is of our own creation.

We can unlock ourselves,
Alter our destination,
For in each life we wear out,
And in every failed vocation
There is still hope of escape
And chance of evacuation.
