March Writing Prompt #4 – Free Verse Revolution

Life’s cruelty held me down
it dampened me
became hardened even
but there lays
determination within
It resides deep down
in the folds of my being
From this place of
darkness and
stoic bravado
I will emerge
I will rise
Watch me become

It’s In You

Only you can grant yourself strength.
Dig deep to show the world
you are the epitome of personal power.

Change your history.
Glorify your present
by overcoming your past.

Give your future
the best of you.
Watch how you rise.

Hidden Talents

untitled

The best of you is waiting for your decision.
Offer it for public consumption
or stifle it to appease fear?

What are you saving your best for?
Is there a prize for coming in last?
Is defeat gonna be your trademark?

Let you shine!
Tell yourself fear is the hint that your offering needs an audience.
Embrace the challenge!

Throw yourself up against life and stick the landing!
Hold on for the applause,
and keep riding till you can’t ride no more.
