Knock Off The Dust

Knock Off The Dust, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @brianrrs37 on Twitter)

The confidence

After ruins

The rise after

The avalanche

The fractured bones

The shattered jaw

The pain of rejection

Impending fall

Out of the crater

You slowly crawl

To once again

Tower tall.

This isn’t about domestic abuse, but it could apply. It is basically and overall theme of overcoming any harsh adversity in life.

  1. I can really identify with this thoughtful poem, Brian. Currently, with what’s going on for me in my life, I feel the part that reads,

    ‘The fractured bones

    The shattered jaw

    The pain of rejection

    Impending fall.’

    Hopefully, in time, I will feel more like the last couple of lines in your poem. Thanks for sharing.

    You definitely haven’t lost your touch as a poet. Sometimes, we feel like that, but then, something comes along in our mind and we manage to produce something despite all the worry about stagnating as one of your recent poems was entitled. I’ve got a bit stuck with my poetry at the moment. I’m hoping something will filter through from my mind to the tips of my fingers soon. Take care of yourself, Brian. Ellie
