I’ve been following the trends
I’ve been making my amends
When required I would bow
Could it be I’m trending now?

I have followed all the rules
Made friends here of kings and fools
All that fashion would allow
Could it be I’m trending now?

I’m always a step behind
Followers follow, you will find
Only some the stage allows
Seems I can’t be trending now…

    Always enjoy reading your thinking. I thought of starting my own trending list, that would consist of only opposites.
    I realized that’s been done, and I do undertand one step behind so I stay out of lines
    and tend to my own trends

  2. This is lovely! You are such an amazing poet, Helen!

    I love this poem, both its structure and its message.

  4. trending so much better than ‘twerking’ – sorry I make light – but enjoyed your words as usual. 🙂
