Weds poetry prompt: ‘Good Intentions’

career_burnout

Today’s prompt: Take the phrase “Good (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem.

Good Intentions

We all set out the gate
With good intentions intact,
Burning in our bright eyes
And twinkling in bushy tails,
But following the equation
Of time plus tiresome peers,
Our smiles soon sadly wane
And shall inevitably furrow
Into permanent frowns
That betray our initial exhilaration.
