W is for Wrapped Refrain - My Journey from A-Z

Complexity this journey held
For a challenge I felt compelled
Taking the easy way to me
A cop out that would surely be
While I often experienced perplexity
The chosen forms gave my blogging complexity

Astonishment abounded here
Often stymied by real fear
Kept on trudging diligently
In time became confidently
This journey found me writing with abandonment
My confidence growing strong with astonishment.
