Tuesday Writing Prompt, 3/22

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—use the words for reasons they don’t understand in a piece of poetry.

With all of our eyes looking across the ocean, or maybe even next door, we see the greed and cruelty being dumped by one man onto the tenderness of those who don’t understand. So I give you my thoughts through “Who What Why”

For reasons we don’t understand

Greed and cruelty have fill the land

We start this life hoping it to be so grand

Then life surrounds us as though unplanned

Time moves quickly through the hourglass sand

Leaving us confused for reasons we don’t understand

As many of us have asked and prayed, remember those misplaced by the cruelty of war and the oppression of “bullies” all over this world. Especially for Ukraine. For if this door does not get closed, we could be the next saying – “for reasons we don’t understand”

Never forget the power and beauty of kindness, regardless of how small. It can have ripple effects to touch us all.

Always Be Kind
