A Riddle in Poetic Form
I was honored to be picked as Poet of the Week for David’s W3 Prompt #39: Wea’ve Written Weekly. Thank you, Denise!
For this week’s challenge, I chose to write a riddle or “puzzle” poem. Mine is short and simple, but I hope you enjoy it and it gives you something to think about.
Brandon’s Puzzle Poem
A treasure without measure, at times a pleasure that seems far off
For me, people are willing to fight for, kill for, go to war for
I am physical, spiritual, mental, restricted by laws and time
I am feared by some, but to the imprisoned I am sublime
To those who have learned helplessness, I am not understood
I am taken for granted, denied, weaponized, and abused too
If you don’t know who I am, the answer is in this poem
