Let There Be A Change (Broken Clock)

by Spoken Silence   Oct 16, 2008

** First letter of every line says the title of the poem. This was written for "Write For A Cause", out of my boredom I decided to write something. **

Left behind in this room, stands a broken clock.
Even with its abandonment it stands tall.
That moment in time stands forever still

Though it knows there can never be a change.
Holding on to a time that once was.
Even if it can never be-
Rearranged and back to the time where-
Eternity seemed perfect.

Back when time seemed to be not a necessity
Entertainment was never watched.

A change took place. . .

Changed the entire world.
Haunted by this broken clock,
A change was never made for the better,
Now we all stand broken
Gazing at the past.
Eternity for this world might not turn out so well as it would seem.

    This is really clever, a poem that causes deep thought. I know you are supposed to use just the first letter, but it is quite interesting when you use the first word too!

    Well done..I have used this form too.

    I like how you portrayed society as a broken clock. I can actually visualize this grandfather clock standing tall and broken, stuck at a time that is unchangeable. Nicely done.
