Lazing, yet feeling the urge to move forth

Imprisoned by comfort, yet desiring liberation

Motivations slowly rise

Bubbling with enthusiasm that struggles for release from the

Oblivion where it tends to be forgotten


Limbo, the stage in every cycle when comfort tempts us to forget our true potential, yet quietly reminding us to explore. Motivation slowly rises and new ideas bubble enthusiastically to encourage us further. It’s hard to resist the intuition because it promises freedom from the oblivion where we risk being forgotten.

Submitted to dVerse where we were prompted to use the word ‘limbo’.

  1. My apologies for replying so late – life and work intruded.

    You’ve balanced the competing pulls quite well.

    Thanks for adding to the Limbo prompt

  2. Reading your poem, I see that there is a connection between limbo and inertia and hopelessness as well, almost as if you don’t see yourself breaking free from it.
