This week’s dVerse prompt was too good to miss – beat poetry fascinates me, although I’ve never tried to write any, until now!
I hope you enjoy this – it was written on the fly!
– Stand –
To the best of my ability
Is not the same as theirs or yours
We are not measuring sticks
By which to compare each other’s achievements
Or to shame another into thinking –
“I’m no good”.
Who has given you, him, her or me
The right to decide, to sit as
judge, jury and executioner of
On what pedestal do the rest of us
have the right to sit, point a finger and proclaim –
“You’re no good”?
