NAPOWRIMO ~ Day 25 ~ Anaphora Challenge ~ I Dream of a Place of Peace ~

So today, I challenge you to write a poem that uses anaphora. Find a phrase, and stick with it — learn how far it can go.

I dream of a Place of Peace
But dreams are in vain
Time and again there is pain;
I was brought to a Promised Land
Created with killing, insane;
Where remnants of blood
Traces of flood,
Sensations of fear remain;

I dream of a place secure
Clean colorful and pure
But I am not sure
As I see
 the flying roof of a bus
As I hear
 the terrifying sound of a blast
OH how long is it going to last?
As I fear
One moment in time
May be so fast , before we know
And thus we where, no more;

I dream of a moment of hope,
Of a land where I may be
And I may for eternity, stay;
Truer than any dream and I
With good grace and gratitude 
Be happy for ever and pray.


  1. We all're dreaming about happy land, but it's said: you have to look within...~ Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. Welcome Dear Friend. It is an honor for me too.Thank you for visiting my humble abode.

  2. Your repeating phrase carries much weight throughout the poem.

  3. I love the repetition of the wish for "a place of peace". Hard to find, in countries. Easier to find in our own safe little rooms.
