Last day of PAD!

Topic for PAD #30, against all odds

I Write Against All Odds
 
All around, above and below
Poets abound, writers that glow.
My simple words I humbly submit
Less eloquently, I have to admit,
Than bards of the past and those in the present
With talent so fair and imagery pleasant.
But I'll ne'er give up on my writing dream
I'll keep at the craft, improving with steam!


And here is my sensational haiku wednesday, absence

Absence of color
Spots skin with patches of white
Vitiligo's curse

I feel like a freak
Ignore the glances and stares
Ever self conscious

But it could be worse
It's only aesthetic, at
Least I have my mind.

Your Against All Odds is much better than the old Phil Collins song!

Interesting take on absence and yes, it's more important to have your mind.

I have that too, on my chest mostly. Makes for a rather splotchy tan, doesn't it!? Well done!
