In Defense

Day 11: Writer’s Digest April 2016 PAD

For today’s prompt, write a defensive poem. The first thing that springs to my mind is getting defensive about an accusation, which may or may not be true. The next thing I think about might be people or animals defending themselves. Or defense in sports. Or defense in the court room. Or well, there’s a lot to defend in this world.


In Defense

I tried for so long

to be supportive

to be caring and

concerned but

there comes that

time when it all

must end


When you give

more than you get

When you give support

provide loyalty…


always care…

and it means


then it is time

to stop the

Defense …

Self preservation

Kicks in for

my own

Defense …
