Yet to Be

Who am I to be? I deign not to ask

A decision not mine to make alone

An ovarian joins to complete that task

I lay dormant in a state of my own

Not yet of flesh, sinew or even bone

I’m half the potential that’s yet to be

For now frozen in anonymity

  1. Oh, the Rhyme Royal! Bane of my existence I mean, not really, but it did give me many, many headaches when I worked on one a day! Yours moves so smoothly, really nice!

  2. This is really clever. It’s TOUGH to do this form well, and yet here you are. And the way you did it with such an unconventional subject made me smile.
