This week I’m starting a new weekly series of video game related poems. I am not a poet, but I do consider myself very creative. This is the first of many I jotted down when I felt like just writing one. You might love it, you might hate it, or you might be indifferent. Either way I hope y’all enjoy it, and if so, let me know because I will keep them coming. See if you can guess the theme before you get to the end.
P.S. I have two serious features in the works on taboo topics so be on the lookout. Peace!
Just a child chasing a dream,
Living my life to find my own theme.
Time is neither my friend nor foe, so many things I still don’t know.
It’s time for me to be a man, time to follow the master’s plan.
I look to sky and ask for guidance, as I sit and patiently wait in Silence.
Lord help me for I’m afraid; please help me walk the path that’s been laid.
I look ahead, hold fast, and begin to believe in my task.
The time is drawing near at last, the time to answer the question that’s been asked.
I can’t stop the beating in my heart; will I be able to fulfill my part?
Will I find the courage to leave home?
Can I step into the unknown?
Everything in life will stem from your decision,
So I will make mine with the utmost conviction.
The World is scary, crazy, and wild,
Something I can’t master as I child.
To grow I can’t remain the same,
This power I hold is mine to tame.
This is where it all begins,
Father be with me until my journeys end.
I will be the very best commander.
So it begins, I choose you Charmander!
