The prompt for today is to write about a minor haunting feeling. With the NaPoWriMo page hacked, I found the prompt on Twitter https://twitter.com/napowrimo2021
A minor haunting feeling I have is around poetry. My poetry for today is ‘ What am I doing?’
The clock's ticking
What am I doing?
Like that's a thing
A pricking feeling
That time I'm wasting
Am I achieving?
what I'm doing!
It's seriously funny
That I do it daily-
When it gives me neither fame nor money
I think I must be crazy
You may think me silly
If you see me
Looking like a busy bee
When I'm only-
When at times I have this nagging feeling
I brush it away thinking
Is better than hurting* or worrying
And if it still haunts me
That I'm doing Nothing really
I carry on writing what I think is poetry
And don't let it bother me
Simply because it makes me happy.
*hurting others or yourself

If you notice a change in the presentation of my poetry, it’s because I finally figured how to do it here after the changes in WordPress. Don’t be shocked. I’ve always said I’m not tech-savvy. Yet, despite the delay in figuring it out, I’m pretty proud that I solved this myself. Thank you all for reading my poetry even when it wasn’t presented well. I’m going to use the next month once NaPoWriMo is done to fix all the past poems I’ve written.
