Unapologetic Freedom | Poem #jibberjabber

Hello and hello! This is a little something I made for the Jibber Jabber with Sue daily word prompt! The word of the day is free.


Forgot to say what I meant

as fast and as honest as possible

Forgot where to look when speaking

to someone brand new

Forgot to abstain from looking like a fool,

from looking like me

But I also forgot to forgive myself

for all of my shortcomings, faults, and that dreaded weighted blanket

of unshakeable worthlessness and failure I wrap about my shoulders.

And when I decide to, that day will be infinite and glorious,

and I will have found my freedom.


Thank you for reading! If you would like to support me, consider checking out my dark fantasy novel Accursed Red (also at Barnes and Noble!). It would make a great read for an older teen or young adult! I have a few older samples of the book on this blog, and you can find them by clicking them up top or going to the monthly archives on the side of the page.

I hope I see you again soon, with a special shout out to all my long-time and new followers! ❤

    The older I get, the less I worry about my imperfections. Those are the things that make others endearing, so it must work in reverse, right?! :-).

      that’s a really great point! and it makes sense because a lot of teenagers and Young adults always feel so miserable and lost, we just have to own it!

        I spent way too much time lost in my younger years and it was all for naught because the only person who really cared as much about me was me! Everyone else has their own imperfections to worry about–they are far less concerned with us than we think. :-). Thanks for contributing to today’s word prompt.
