PAD Challenge Day 27 Poem: Looking Back, How It All Began

PAD Day challenge 27, yes, it's 27th day of the April month, today. Today's prompt by writer's digest poetic aside blog is to write a looking back poem. When I look back, how April month began and how I started writing for PAD challenge, another poem is born, check it out,


looking back, how it all began
that anxiety, i can or i can’t
what’s gonna happen?

looking back how it all began
a lot of planning
i’ll do this
and i’ll do that
i want to be the perfect

looking back how it all began
'i don’t want to fail
no, no!
i don’t want to fail'
looking back how it all began

'practice, practice, practice
will it work?
i want to succeed'
looking back how it all began
it was so easy
just one poem per day
one small effort at a time

looking back how it all began
a lot of fun replaced anxiety
poems replaced the fear of failure
success and perfection
it’s all about just penning poems

looking back, how it all began
crazy pen brought crazy words
love, hope, desires, and faith
everyday blossomed with a new poem flower

looking back, how it all began
how pad challenge began
how this fun began
we all joined
and how this rain of poems began

looking back, how it all began
and now am thinking,
'how it’s reaching to the end of the challenge
i’m sad
i’m in tears
a new poem every day
what a wonderful journey it was!'
looking back how it all began

looking ahead
for a new journey
for new destinations
for new challenges
with new fun poem festivals

don’t know how i did it
but it just happened
the insane love for poems
kept me writing every day
will keep me writing every new day 

life is simple
life is beautiful
just one challenge at a time
one small step every day
look back and assess
look ahead and improve
life is simple
