Self Control

Below is a nonnet. A nonnet is a poem of nine lines, with the first line having 9 syllables. The next line has 8 syllables, etc, etc. This poem on Self-Control is part of the Fruit of the Spirit collection in my first book of poetry.

We possess the strength and self-control,
Might from within, to keep our cool
Not give in to ev’ry whim,
Feeling, caprice, and sin.
Po’wr to rise above,
Unrestraint, And,
Under God,

    I really love the syllable arrangement in each line; it is both aesthetic and meaningful!
    I’m excited to see that your creativity is being organized into relevant compilations! 🙂
