I made it to the halfway stage. 15 more days of having to cope with my attempts at poetry, guys! 🙂
It started with a YouTube video
I stumbled upon when I typed Law,
And filled my little, dark brown eyes with
Amazement, wonder, and awe.
It started with a YouTube video,
One I didn’t completely understand,
But one that contained euphoria, disappointment,
Shiny things like trophies,
Portraits of individuals who looked so cool, they could be in a band.
A band named Champions,
For that’s what they were:
In my head and in fact.
It started with a YouTube video that
Sparked off nights of dreams
But days of work
That eventually amounted to nothingness
A subpar rank
That confirmed I would never be them.
3 years on I was gifted a chance,
I stopped eating right,
That too amounted to nothingness,
And today I find myself wondering:
If it all started with a YouTube video,
Maybe all I need to end it:
Is another one.
