A few nights ago, I shared a poem on my other blog, The Memoirs of a Yo-Yo Dieter, entitled, “Why I Run.”
With the help of a good friend, I edited the poem down to make it more powerful, less wordy, and to make it “submission-ready” for a few contests.
Since I haven’t shared any new writing on here in a while, I decided to post the truncated version on here for feedback, critique, and any comments. 🙂
Until the bitter voice
the evil whispers
skew my vision.
No matter how far I go
I cannot escape the ghost
The voice cannot shout
For anyone that read the original version on my other blog – which do you prefer?
Thanks for reading!
