Here I am again, a good two days in a row. Now to be fair, this is a poem I have already written. This prompt didn’t really inspire me today. Hopefully you can find something to write about. Here’s today’s prompt:
Write a poem or short story about a character who has a unique problem to solve. Try and develop a problem you have never faced. Focus on your character’s plans to fix the problem and try to show what type of person your character is in the face of adversity.
Here I stand at a Crossroad
Between a World I’ve never known
And a World I love.
This new World is full of
But the World I’m in now
Is full of opportunity.
Will I live in peace,
Tranquil and silent
Or will I find a way
To get what I long for
What I crave. Adventure
Is before me and
Peace is behind.
Where will I turn
“For I know the plans I have for you,”
Says the Lord.
“They are plans for good…
To give you a future and hope.”
Okay that’s it from me. I hoped you like it.
P.S. This was written during a move from Arizona to Colorado, my first out of state move.
