Musical Inspiration Challenge #1

So I've been wanting to do this for a while now. It has been in the back of my creative mind for far too long. So here it is. I will be starting a new challenge every once in a while where anyone who writes poetry can participate. This isn't a competition to see whose poem is better than someone else, but a chance for those who participate to explore their writing roots further. It also gives people a chance to share their writing. I encourage all of you to write something, and to please comment and share with others. 

I've been listening to a lot of music lately and the song "The Only Way Out" by Bush has been giving me a lot of influence lately. In an interview with the World Famous KROQ 106.7 radio show with Kevin & Bean, Gavin Rossdale, lead singer of the rock band Bush, told them what his new song meant: 

“It comes from the record Man On The Run, Man On The Run being this concept, a cross section of all of our lives. Trying to fit everything in. Trying to be successful. Trying to be the best we can and the challenges that go with that, for guys and girls, and the only way out is through being the uplifting concepts of the way I try and do it.”

For this challenge I want all of you to think about the uplifting concepts of the way you try and find a way out of something.

Please share you poem links here, and don't forget to link your blog back to here.


  1. This is my first time ever using Mr. Linky to present a poetic challenge. I would be greatly humbled and honored if my fellow readers and blogging friends would participate in this. If I can get anyone at all to try this out, I will at least know that it is worth the time and effort of constructing it.

    I can't wait to see what all of you have to share! :)

  2. Definitely writing to your challenge, Kenn. :) I'll be back later with my poem.

    1. Can't wait to see what amazing words you will share. :)
