I Do Not Care

I ponder often what is true
I do
Of what can’t be changed I dare
not care
Never desiring to stumble and fall
at all
Finding myself back to the wall
Life will be easier once I die
but I must confess this to be a lie
I do not care at all


The lesson for a new poetic form is offered up at dVerse Poets Pub by Whimsygizmo today. It’s a fun Spanish form called the Ovillejo. I just had to give it a try. Head on over for the lesson and to read some wonderful poetry, some whimsical and some more serious, in this wonderful form.

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    Nicely done. A great mix of anticipating Heaven, but still having a few worries. Very honest.

    Your “confession” at the end feels sweet, maybe a little wistful in your caring. Good work, Linda. 🙂

    I admire the twist in the last line ~ Sometimes too much thinking and worrying about the future can be too much ~ Finding the balance is the key ~

    Good work on the form Linda ~ Happy week ~

    Linda, this is a strong example of the form! The short staccato lines within lend meaning to your devil-may-care attitude here, also. Well done.
