When you’ve got somewhere to go, distractions will crop up and pop out from every available woodwork and if you are not mindful and focused, you’ll probably spend far too much invaluable time facing shadows that are not worthwhile.
The truth that you tell yourself in times like this is the truth that you come to believe. If you say ‘oh, I can’t go through this,’ that’s true; if you say, ‘I am going to crack this,’ that’s also your truth.
Whichever way you chose to go, into the light or in the shadows, will determine your reality.
It’s time for a little game of poetic hide-and-seek with Day 9’s prompt, Camouflage, by the prolific @jacquelineobyikocha.
For today’s poem, take inspiration from camouflage — you may apply it in any way you like, whether you write about visual or social dissimulation, or focus on the way we hide our myriad emotions, actions, and reactions. What would be your ultimate smokescreen, concealment, or mask?
