Cursed

Give me room to think!

I cannot help I am too big

For my mind is a mountain

The summit obscured by

Ever present

Drifting clouds of ignorance

Day 2 of Writing 201’s Poetry course: gift, acrostic, simile.
Rhyming is hard when your a non-native in English. So I stick with what I can do and practice in poetic form and device. Not too sure about the device though. Is ‘My mind is a mountain’ strong enough?

I chose to write about the hardship of being a gifted learner, something my eldest son has to deal with. So the title and the acrostic are in contradiction with another.
