" On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.
For fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication.
For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not."

Today's prompt: SEE

I see her.

The girl I could have been

The one I was supposed to be

She is strong yet tender

I am timid and unapproachable

She says whatever is on her mind

It’s entertaining, sweet.

I speak and the words are sharp knives

Casting doubt and judgment

She grew up with love and acceptance

I was raised amongst wolves

I see her and I think of what could have been


It’s a wicked thing

Maybe it’s a good thing.

She shows me who I could be.

Who I already am.

If only I would set myself free.
