Weekend Writing Prompt #56 – Erosion Everywhere

Thank you, Sammi Cox, for the prompt – Erosion – 125 words, if you would like to join in, please use the above link

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem/prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem/rose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

Erosion Everywhere

Erosion is everywhere
whether it’s in ones life
or part of natures moods
the eating away of land
the sea on coastal belts
falling of timber trees
eating away protection
of dangerous gases
floating around the air
polluting the world

Maybe a spider web
that’s erosion of its home
How many more homes
to disappear from ones life
So much misery for humans
manners have changed
no please or thank you’s
These days human bodies
are slowing showing the
effects of a life of erosion.

Destruction is everywhere
Leaders of the country
forever changing rules
life hanging on a thread
Too many guns around
schools work under stress
every day children suffer
erosion of their little life
not knowing what to do
The laws need repairing.
