Ascertain

Updated on February 17, 2018

Ascertain


Pulled to ground zero, by norms,
I’m aiming high to nullify them.

Going south, i’ve found, way down the gut,
An unknown source of strength.

The voice is uprising,
Steadily on the horizon.

Fear I have none,
I ascertain.

      Hi Hari. I like the flying spirit in your poem. There are contradictory meanings like ground, high, south and strength. Nice to know there is positivity everywhere. Keep up the fearlessness hehe...Thanks for sharing.
