Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge which was started by our star writer Christine Ray. We hope to offer all of you something that will spark your creativity and willingness to participate.
Today’s prompt: Write a piece of prose or poetry around the phrase “nine years old, and she never had a chance”
Nine Years Ago
It was nine years ago today, that faithless day, when life erupted with come what may.
The car she was in, offered no shelter within, as it hit the black ice and began to spin.
With injuries so grave, her leg they could not save, now at age nine she must be brave.
Her dreams of dance, was lost at first glance, knowing now she never had a chance.
Some dreams are alive, a determination to thrive, beyond expectation they too survive.
For others can see, the grace that can be, regardless of crutch, the beauty of she.
Now dreams of dance, where once was no chance, joyfully fill her with happenstance.
As life can sometime throw you into a tailspin, try not to give up but continue to strive for your dreams. And always try to be kind even when it is hard.
