Always Be Determined [acrostic] – (poetic prompt: determined)

This morning I went for a run. I was always intending it to be a long run (long for me is around 10km/6 miles) but I inadvertently slipped into my “I can be better, do more, go further, achieve more” frame of mind and so my run ended up being significantly longer than I had planned… but more about that in Sunday’s running update.

Today’s prompt word is ‘Determined’.

Always Be Determined [acrostic]

Loads more
With a positive
Attitude and a
Yearning for
Be focused and
Determined and
Try your best
Every day
Review and repeat
Measure progress
Initiate new goals
Now, how do you feel?
Extraordinarily awesome and
Delightfully smug!

    I’m not usually a fan of acrostic poems, but you did a great job with this one. It flows well and stays connected, which is what other poets sometimes miss.
