Day 9’s challenge via NaPoWriMo Website was to write a poem that includes a line that you’re afraid to write.
This might be because it expresses something very personal that makes you uncomfortable – either because of its content (“I always hated grandma”), or because it seems too emotional or ugly or strange (“I love you so much I would eat a cockroach for you”). Or even because it sounds too boring or expected (“You know what? I like cooking noodles and going to bed at 7 p.m.”). But it should be something that you’re genuinely a little scared to say.
This was a hard Challenge… I’m also way behind <yikes> but still hope to finish the month by completing all the Challenges!!!
Today as I wander, in this life so far
I may not be anyone’s forever
Where you can share
All the sweet
And strong times, with another
But one day
Maybe in the next life
I still hope to find it…
