Poetry Prompt #4

Happy Monday everyone! Hopefully you’re having a good start to your week! If not, at least you have the rest of the week for it to get better… 🤷‍♂️ Trying to work on being more positive over here😂

Anyways, as it’s the beginning of a new week, that means it’s time for another poetry prompt. For this time around, I’m going to be using a prompt from my Write the Poem notebook, which is:

Prompt:Word Associations:

Alright, here’s what I came up with, I hope you enjoy it!

What precious things I have found,

Wandering down this path,

Not sure where I was going,

But knowing I simply wanted to move forward.

The people I’ve met,

The experiences I’ve had,

The lessons I’ve learned,

I never would have known otherwise.

At this point,

All I have to say to myself is a simple,

Thank you.

Thank you for choosing to go on,

Even when I didn’t know what that meant,

Where that would be,

Who that would be with.

Thank you for taking those chances,

Even though they would knock me


And lead me to wonder,

“What was I thinking?”

Thank you,

For simply trusting in myself,

Even though I didn’t realize,

That’s what I was doing at the time.

In the end,

I had enough faith in myself,

To handle the consequences,

No matter what they were.

If you want to try it out yourself, feel free to share it in the comments below, I’d love to see what you come up with!

Other than that, I’ll see you on Wednesday with a new post!
