Reminder of this week's theme can be seen in the first post of this week's challenge
Table of Contents:
Consider these truths:
A previous trend - when naming children - was to create names based on nouns, such as Amber, Jade, Shadow or Rebel
But a more recent trend is to give children names based on adjectives: Stormy, Jazzy, Able, or Brave
Thinking of the Higher Power in your life, what are some nouns and adjectives that describe what they are to you?
Using the sentence "I call you ______" write a series of statements declaring what you call your higher power, using the nouns and adjectives you came up with. But write them as names, by capitalizing the first letter.
Optional: Explain why you call your Higher Power these names, by adding "because ______."
With that in mind, here is today's prompt:
Discuss the things you struggle to trust the Higher Power with.
Explain why you hesitate to trust the Higher Power with these things.
Optional: Discuss what needs to be done, for you to move past this hesitation.
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.
Today, I wrote a poem inspired by the need for therapy in regards to our mental health. Here is the poem.
by Alison Caddell
I call you Growth because, you can heal me of this stagnancy, this place where I've been stuck because of the pain inflicted by others. I call you Accountability, because you can help me realize the ways I've also been hurtful or harmful. I call you Architect because you can give me the design needed for me to build a safe space, specifically made for me. I call you Healer because you can help me purge the sickness inflicted by years of abuse and mistreatment. I call you Necessary because I need you to help me move on.
I call you Necessary because I need you.
