Hey there, I hope you had a good weekend!

Welcome back to another Poetry Prompt Monday, where we start the week off with a little creative exercise to get the juices going ๐Ÿ˜‰ This week, I went with another prompt from my Write the Poem journal for some inspiration.

Here’s the prompt:

Conflict

Here’s what I came up with for this weeks prompt, enjoy!


There are so many wars,

We fight with ourselves,

Everyday of our lives.

No one else is meant,

To see those battle scars,

Those self-inflicted wounds.

No one is meant,

To see how our true enemy,

Is that one voice in our mind.

No one is meant,

To see the amount of our own blood,

We shed as we fight with ourselves.

So when someone asks how you are,

Where do you even begin,

To describe the battle,

Which rages within?


Alright, that’s all I have for today! Thank you for taking the time to check out my post, and I will have another one for you on Wednesday!
