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! ❤
