EVOLVING DOOR: POMPOSITY TO REINVENTION – Ragtag Daily Prompts Wednesday (Reinvent)

This Wednesday past, the crew over at RDP (RAGTAG DAILY PROMPTS) gave us a new word to stimulate our creativity. And that was REINVENT. Whilst Eugenia over at Moonwashed gave us POMPOUS as our prompt.


It’s that time of year
Where we begin
To look back
On the year gone by
Evaluate & reflect
Was it a failure?
Was it a success?
A fulfillment of your goals
Or an unqualified mess?!
To think of making some changes
To our lives
Resolutions for the year ahead
Reinvent to circumvent
The obstacles we’ve faced.
Without making a dent
In our loved ones
No more backward steps
To retrace.
I’m adamant
That we need
To keep evolving
Keep moving forward
Through the revolving
Door of life
Reinvent yourself
Take on a new role
Become a new person
The main actor
Begin taking control
Get off the threadmill
And back on the road
There’s no need
To be haughty or pompous
Kicking up a fuss
Or making a rumpus
Time for some hush
And reflection
It’s not arrogance or vanity
Just self-improving reinvention

  1. There are too many who refuse to adapt or change – I attribute that to lack of self awareness brought on by refusing to do any self examination of conscience! Great poem that lays it all out with a subtle rhyme!

    1. Couldn’t agree with you more Muri! πŸ€”πŸ‘πŸ’― Self examination & self awareness of one’s difficulties and flaws are hugely beneficial and vital to a person’s inner growth! And helps you understand what’s going on around and to you better.


  2. What wise words and an excellent poem, Ken! I agree we need to take a good look at ourselves and begin the process of self-improvement, renewal, and reinvention. It’s arrogant not to make ourselves aware of our flaws and misgivings. Thank you for joining in.
