Something in my way

by Poetry and Literature by Sofia Kioroglou


I see an obstacle
always a roadblock
in my dreams and when awake

I see this road sign
always the stop sign.
I thought third time is the charm.


NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: The poem was originally published on Silver Birch Press. I wrote this poem after failing my third driving test. I was crushed when I failed it the first time but had thought I would pass it the second time. Third time is the charm did not work for me, though. I have given up the whole thing and see myself more suited to being a back seat driver.
