Acrostic - Attitude

Kicking off A to Z Challenge with an Acrostic.



What is an Acrostic?
Acrostic Poetry is where the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same words as in the title

****************

Attitude
Away I flew, soaring over horizons new
To grasp the trails of fallen star
They gasped in shock, and screamed and frothed
I still reached for the twilight afar
Toughened by time's tricky plays
Unflinched I braced my esteem
Drenched in palette of blues and grays
Envisaging a thousand dreams.






This poem is dedicated to all the brave-hearts and dreamers who never fail to work towards their aspirations no matter what people say.
