This moment will triumph and crystalize,

leaving examples of harmony in its wake.

Declare your right to be utterly glamorized.


Backwards we go, longing to chastise,

at the turn of the cheek,

this moment will triumph and crystalize.


Fly, Fly away to those barren skies,

where uncertainty awaits your return.

Declare your right to be utterly glamorized.


My thoughts, once static, begin to catalyze,

lifting me up to comfort my soul.

This moment will triumph and crystalize.


Search for ambition, keep your eye on the prize.

For it relinquishes the grief and spite.

Declare your right to be utterly glamorized.


Unified efforts will soon be immortalized,

granting you deserved rites of passage.

This moment will triumph and crystalize.

Declare your right to be utterly glamorized.


Thank you for stopping by 😍

    This is spectacular. Meant to read it the other day there when it was first published...forgot. Read it now and can see why it is deserving of Top Story! Well done, Lamar!

    It's refreshing...it left me prepared to be glamorized. Beautifully written, Lamar!

  • Donna Fox (HKB)6 months ago

    Lamar I appreciate the rhyme scheme of this poem! I also like the repetitive language that adds extra emphasis to your message! Keep up the great work!

  • I tried to declare it once. Everyone simply laughed. Great poem, though. Very encouraging. Maybe I'll try again.

  • This was soooo powerful! You also perfectly executed the Villanelle! It's a format that I'm so terrifed to try, lol!

  • This is brilliant. I opened it last night when you published it but realised immediately I was too tired to give it the level of focus it deserved! So, back again. Outstanding, Lamar!β€οΈβœ¨πŸ™
