Dead End Daze

Are you in a dead end daze

can't see clearly through the haze

feeling stuck in delays

options seem to just replay

seem to waste your life away

tending to procrastinate

best start somewhere anyway

before your mind starts to stray

if it is already gone

then it's time to just move on

016 April PAD Challenge: Day 30

By: Robert Lee Brewer | April 30, 2016

Yesterday, the blog seemed to take the haphazard prompt a little too seriously–as some people were able to access the blog while others were not. Our tech team was working on the very unorganized problem and hopefully have a solution, or else the final prompt of the month will live up to its name as well.

For today’s prompt, write a dead end poem. Of course, I was thinking in terms of the challenge, but a dead end can literally mean the end of a person’s life, a dead end road, a dead end job, dead end mortgage, and so on. Take the phrase “dead end” and apply it to a noun, and the possibilities are nearly endless (except, well, there’s the whole “dead end” finality to it, I suppose). I hope it’s fun and that the blog is alive and well today. #aprpad #NaPoMo #poetry prompt 30, #pamschwetz
