Progress (Prompt)

Write about progress (or the lack of it).
It can be anything that moves forward and not necessarily in the good way.
Inhale, relax
These tubes can chip
Your teeth, just
letting you know

Scars will be left
But as minimal as
The surgeon can
Make them

We must stop the
If we don't, you
Won't see 2013

I know you are
This is good, even
Through trembling hands

Your children will
See you after
As will your lover
On his distant shore

Now... breathe...

  1. uck. Progression means I have to keep moving. Just kidding. Interesting poem. Loved the ending. Good prompt too. You come up with some different ones.
