5 Quinzaine: Role Models

The future depends on us.
Will we be worthy
role models?

They're eyes see all that we do.
Can we be better?
Should we care?

They idolize who you are.
Should you be careful
how you act?

They look up to you with awe.
Do you deserve it?
Are you true?

these four quinzaines were written in response to Jingle Poetry's Poetry Potluck [Idols, Role Models, and Mentors].  was a tad trickier fitting this theme with this form, but technically i find anything with syllable restrictions to be a bit of a challenge.  


  1. Questions we should all ask ourselves. Nicely done.

  2. Nice take, turning the prompt inside out. Like it!

  3. lovely wonders..
    enjoyed the imagery.

  4. deserving questions.. thank you for this! my potluck-

  5. great questions and a great form. i really like it!
