Reaching the Top

This poem is for the NaPoWriMo day 28 challenge to write in Skeltonic verse. Skeltonic verse has short lines and rhymes but has no particular rhyme scheme. The writer just uses one set of rhymes until getting bored and then switches to another. This one is about fear of success.

I try and try

To climb high

To the sky,

And from here fly,

But ere the top,

I always stop,

A failed crop.

How far I drop!

Because the fear

Becomes strong here,

But I’m so near,

I shed a tear

As regrets sear

My tired mind.

I would rewind

If I could find

A certain kind

Of kindness,

And not fear success.
