Day 30 of NaPoWriMo2020

The hands of the clock have struck the final hour
After completing their rotations in twenty four hours
That brought an end to a day that has passed after crossing the meridians of time
It signalled the arrival of another day
Of another challenge to be faced

Finally the end of April is here
And the last day of NaPoWriMo2020 has come
It's time to lay down my pen and close my notes for keeping
I can take a break from writing and hibernate for a while

The rigor of writing for NaPoWriMo is over
I feel a sense of relief for completing this journey
And a sense of pride for making it to the end of the competition
Somehow the experience gave me a taste of what it's like to be a writer in its true sense
With all the demands of discipline and commitment it entail

What a journey it was for my mind
Spilling thoughts and ideas for thirty days on a daily basis
Keeping in mind the rules to be followed to stay in the competition
Even when I didn't feel like writing at all
Even when the inspiration to spill never came at times
That resulted in poems with less substance and depth

Yet this competition has taught me values
Essential to the making of a writer
It taught me discipline and commitment, It taught me focus, persistence  and responsibility
This is the essence of NaPoWriMo I gleaned from this experience

For the second time I have completed the race
Which I consider to be a feat despite the mediocrity of my entries
I will keep coming back if only to partake in the experience
And be part of a community where writing is revered and loved
