A.N. - Another cotest poem. The prompt was "lessons learned," and it had to be in huitain form (a Spanish form, with 8 lines of 8 syllables).


A steady diet of self-doubt
only sates hunger for so long
till it consumes from inside out
the pabulum that kept you strong.
Now you question what's right and wrong
and ask to which you'll acquiesce -
submit to the three siren's song
or join the choir of the blessed?
