Within Reach

“I might not feel like it but you’re getting closer every day. Just keep going. Keep reaching forward and I promise you’ll get there!”

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompts:
FOWC with Fandango  — Cosmopolitan
Your Daily Word — Allay
Ragtag Daily Prompt — Cauldron
Word of the Day — Prayer

Within Reach

Want to sip a cosmopolitan on a Hawaiian beach
A cosmic goal easily within your reach
No tonic or prayer not even a preach
It gets closer with every goal you breach

It’s not magic or wizard’s spell
Just work hard and do everything well
No cauldron of potion with a successful smell
Keep going you’re sure to excel

The poem is to allay your fears
It’s really worth the work, pain and tears
Even if winning will take many years
Reach for victory as the storm clears



Thanks for reading my friends.

There’s more in the Poetry CornerPoetry Nook, and the Short Story Collection

Have a great day!

    1. Hello Suzanne,
      It does. I started writing my mysteries in 2011 and they’re only now coming right.
      We have to just keep pushing and working until it happens and it will happen.
      Thanks for reading.
