ABC Poetry Contest

Poetry Contest
For this contest you are challenged to write an ABC poem. ABC is a form of poetry with a specific format.

Battling thoughts.
Choosing which option to follow.
Denied at every turn.
Endless pursuits.
Relationships confuse.

The first four lines follow the order of the alphabet. Last line begins with any letter. More information at Poetry Dances.

Write about anything using this format. An ABC poem usually only has one stanza. But we are keeping the format open You can submit a traditional ABC poem or you can include additional stanzas. If you include additional stanzas they must follow the ABC format but not necessarily the same starting letters.
