Poem | In Media Res (GloPoWriMo 2017)

glopo2017button1Hallo! So I’ve had such bad writer’s block and basically I haven’t been writing anything and yeah it’s been getting me a bit down, I won’t lie to you. But I literally just wrote this poem and I know it’s not very good but ah well because I’m going to post it anyway. So bleugh.


In Media Res

I feel
like
my life has been placed on pause.

I should be in the prime of my life;
I am eighteen
young
confident
doing something I should be loving.

But I feel pulled apart
between two things:
two places, two groups
of people.
Two countrysides.

I am in the middle of things.

And I don’t know which way to go
because being in the middle
doesn’t last forever.

Eventually,
one way will have to give.


This is a very personal poem but I feel like it really summarises some of my thoughts over the past few days: how I honestly have been feeling in media res for ages. I’m sure it all will work out at some point in the future, but it’s an interesting thing to write about until then.

Thanks for reading! ❤
