National Poetry Month – Day 17

April 17 – Prompt: “Your weakest point of insecurity.”

It might be a personality trait, a comment someone said all those years ago – a deep, deep fear. Either way, its time to release it. Give it a name and shed light on it by way of words – your own words. Healing. Redemptive. Liberating.

“Defenseless. Broken.

Nothing but trash on the floor.

Unable. Unspoken.

Couldn’t become more…

Vulnerable. Wanted!

Value beyond compare.

Empowered. Undaunted –

Because He met me there.”

National Poetry Month – Day 13

April 13 – Prompt: “How do rainy days make you feel?”

Rain doesn’t always act as a lady should,

but respect – she always demands.

And her wildness of nature is endearing

as I see myself in her every dance.

So even if the storms rage for days,

And wind angrily blows about,

And the clouds let loose their bolts of light

As the thunder begins to shout…

There’s something calming about the chaos

And a gentleness to the rain

That lets me know I’m not alone –

Even nature can release it’s pain.

The rawness of all emotion found within her

Whether percieved as good or bad,

Allows me a sense of freedom in her presence

As I have rarely before had.

And if she can bellow out her fury

And still cause the flowers to bloom,

Something even more beautiful than this storm

Shall soon fill this now empty room.

And if I can just keep pushing on until I notice

New growth bursting forth like fresh blades of grass

I’ll know the worst is ending soon

And good things will come to pass.

National Poetry Month – Day 9

April 9 – Prompt: “I hope that you _______.” As a reminder, you’re welcome to write along! The prompts come from @indelibleinkwriters on Instagram, and the more the merrier. I love reading what everyone puts to paper and shares!

I hope that you…

…Speak up for what is right and true

And those things weighing heavily on your mind.

…Seek the beauty all around you,

Leave insecurities and labels behind

…Give what is owed to those whom it is due,

And always choose curiosity over being refined.
