My time is limited today, so today I’m sharing a poem I wrote a while back, I feel it is suitable for today’s prompt for OctPoWriMo (day 12), the prompt is shadows -our shadows, it’s what makes and sometimes breaks us, the important thing is to learn from our shadows and overcome them to become better individuals and also have an understanding for those people whom we surround ourselves with.
Disclaimer: The subject matter may not be suitable to all tastes; you may even classify this as a little disturbing; this is a relatively dark piece with dark thoughts. I do not condone you to think like this -or act out any parts of this poem; this piece is just expressing an idea and is intended as an exercise in exploring the word prompt ‘shadows’. If you are a younger reader, please avoid reading this.
I Didn’t Want To Be…
I wasn’t planning to post anything today; but Billie Jo tempted me with her entry for BeKindWrite’s celebratory Birthday Inspirational Monday post InMon-ster: Deadly Papers.
The prompts I had to work with are:
Deadly paper / The city that never wakes / Deafening / Last place you look / They took it away
BeKindWrite was not mean with the rules; therefore we had free reign on how to work the pieces; the only condition was to use the prompts (all or a few) in any way we may interpret it.
I could not wait to sink my teeth into this. I hope you enjoy what my muse became.
