#OctPoWriMo-Day 5: Denied

Letting my poem speak for itself today. Prompt: free write for 10-15 minutes on what it feels like to be denied. There was only one thing I could write about. So I did. Just one note: the quote at the beginning I heard in this year’s release of the latest Mission...

Compassion Will Test You

I wasn’t planning on writing about compassion today. I’ve been trying to spread it like wildfire recently so I’ve been taking a break and letting other voices be heard as well. Yeah, I’m a chatterer. My mother’s nickname was ‘Chatty Cathey” after the doll for a reason. And me, well, once...
