What form shall we take upon ourselves?
What shape to give our lives?
All the same?
Our differences deny?
Shall we perform to expectations?
Conform to norm as asked?
Chloroform “self” as tasked?
Are there better ways for each of us?
Can we boldly form new molds?
Transform ourselves, unsold?
I’ve struggled in recent months to find the time and energy to write. A group of writers proposed writing something every day for the month of October, based on a one word prompt, and writing in just five minutes – no worrying about perfect grammar or always being poignant or well-polished. I gave it a go in an effort to jump start my writing. For the one word prompts, I followed along with The Upper Room’s Sight Psalms. They put out a picture a day and apply one word and a short reflection. I am pleased and encouraged that I met my goal of writing every day this past month. If you are reading this, thanks for accompanying me for this experiment in motivation and discipline.
