You and me could move mountains.

Shift the borders of cities, of countries.

Conquer vast lands and redefine the Earth as we know it.

But you’d rather chase rabbits.

Focus on the minuscule,

Forever missing the big picture for momentary pleasures.

Disobeying the drive in you for greater.

Ignoring your hunger for the real,

For what is lasting,

For me.


Welcome to Day 12 of A Month of Mini Writing Challenges! I stumbled across this challenge and thought I’d give it a shot. Today I mixed the Daily Post’s challenge word disobey, MMWC’s challenge to write a poem of any length about boundaries, and my current jam of the moment “Love Drought” by Beyoncé. Want to join?
