We have completed week one of the #WritingForHealing #30DayPoetryChallenge. Week two's theme is "Seeking & Preparation." In today's prompt, we are dissecting our moral code vs our moral practice, to see our elevated selves.
Table of Contents:
Consider the following:
Whether you're religious or not, you have a moral code that guides your life choices.
In addition, you have a moral practice that reflects how your life is being lived.
Our moral code and our moral practice don't always align.
But when you're at your best, you are probably reaching the highest standards of your moral code.
With that in mind, here is today's prompt:
Write out a list of things you believe, morally.
In other words, what are your beliefs on right and wrong?
Review the list, then write a poem that describes the morals and beliefs that make you your best.
In other words, describe your moral high ground
Optionally: describe how you are when you reach this high ground.
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's prompt doesn't come with an example. I am keeping the poem for a later release date.
