Poetry Prompt 3 in the Writing for Healing 30 Day Challenge

Updated: Apr 5

It's Day 3 of our #30PoetryChallenge - #WritingForHealing. In today's prompt, we are recognizing the higher power in our lives that can manage the things we can't control.

In previous posts, I included the weekly theme, but to keep things from being redundant, you can view the theme in the first post of this week's challenge

Poetry Prompt

Consider these questions:

  • Do you believe in a higher power other than yourself?

  • What or who is that higher power?

  • Is it a being, a belief system, a practice, or an institution?

With these thoughts in mind, here is today's prompt:

  • Mentally review the things in your life that you cannot change. Who or what is the Higher Power that can change those things?

  • Write a letter to your Higher Power, explaining the power they have to improve your life, especially over the things you cannot change.

Creative Reminder

  • We are writing prose poetry

  • Prose poetry simply gives or explains the [your] narrative.

  • This does not require rhyme schemes or line breaks.

  • But you can have multiple paragraphs, if you like.

  • A random rhyme is also okay.

  • Feel free to use alliteration, symbols, imagery, or rhythm, if you want.

Example Poem:

A Letter to the Great I Am

by Alison M. Caddell

I cannot change the words spoken over me, about me. But You are God. You are the Living Word, and Your Words cancel every curse thrown my way. I cannot change mistakes I've done in word or deed. But you are The Perfect One, empowered to help me overcome old ways.

I cannot erase the past, but You have cast my sins into the sea of forgetfulness, from the moment I gave in to You. From the moment I sought out Your Will.

I am Your beloved child, and You are the Great I Am. You are the I Am. The Great I Am. "I Am" is in control. And, because that is true...

...I am destined for healing and restoration.

I Am Healed.
