Experience, geography of existence,

Exploration of self.

-To test character-

In all situations.


The rocky terrain of a path untraveled,

Providing ups and downs.

-To tease awareness-

Offering discovery.


The sandy beach amid a sunset,

Blowing a cooling breeze.

-To test balance-

Searching for enjoyment.


The swamps within a forest,

Messy path to trudge.

-To tease ability-

Proving survival skills.


The road of slippery ice,

Filled with possible blunders.

-To test the will-

Encouraging adventure.


The grass plain on a warm day,

Wide terrain to run.

-To offer freedom-

For enjoyment.


Experience, geography of existence,

Exploration of life.

-Continuation of growth-

Discovering who you are.


Submitted to dVerse for the prompt to add geography into our poetry from Anmol (alias HA).

  1. I really like the “To test/To tease” dichotomy — it gives the poem a good pace. It’s wonderful how exploration and experience create avenues for growth and self-discovery. Very well penned! 🙂
