Rent II

I long to leave our mother
for the gentler embrace
that's still inclined to smother
but not keep me in my place,
providing like no other
the enigma known as - Space,
whose understanding, starry eyes
are distant, but immensely wise.

It's a painful separation
but I feel it must be done,
with much determination
she'll cling and tears will run,
complete emancipation
isn't nonchalantly won
and though my homeward path be lost
I'll find a way to pay the cost.

I like this piece, can't wait to check out more of your work!

I'll be following along some through the A to Z Challenge! Is it your first year?

I'd like to present to you an award awaiting for you over at my blog: The Cryton Chronicles : An Awards Ceremony I hope you will accept it and share it with others!

Good luck! I'm sure I'll see you around :)

Hey Jak, well thanks a lot! I'm extremely busy so may not have time for all the requirements but will definitely be checking out your blog during a-z and beyond.

Very awesome!

To be honest, finding the 11 blogs to pass it along to took me a looooong time.

Technically, though, it isn't directly A to Z related, so can be done at any point (if wanting).

Sounds good, same in return. Lets do this!
