I decided I’d try and commit to this 30 day challenge for April. I am definitely not a poet or much of a writer but I thought this might be a good way of self-expression and healing. The “early-bird” prompt is self-portrait in which you portray yourself in the guise of a historical or mythical figure.
Once upon a time there was a brown-eyed girl who grew up feeling alone
She hid in the shadows, not allowing herself to shine her light
In time the light went out and her heart was hardened
Until one day the handsome prince with the piercing blue eyes flew in on the wings of destiny
He showed her what true love was
Through the darkest of days and his sacrifice her heart was opened so she may share her true light.
