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
Table of Contents:
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.
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.
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.
