Writing Prompt #161 “Collage 24” – What if?


Quote s above: “Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith.”

You question, and so rightly so.

What if you say, what if and why not?

You don’t want to be wading upstream

You want to know

Where you stand

What they’ll say

Will they reject or accept you.

All good and perfect queries

In a world of uncertainty.

It must be hard to know if they’ll

Gift you or egg you.

Whilst we lock away our love, our feelings

Knowing who we are is safe and precious,

In their eyes I may be different

Not as available as right now,

But that is to be expected

I am not their slave, I too have a life.

Our lives have never been as floating balloons

But ones directed by the needs of others

So now we have a chance

To be ourselves, take that leap of faith

Grab hold and hang on tight.

    Wonderful interpretation of the collage. I love how you’ve woven these elements together, with a steadfast and softer “voice.” 🙂

    All good questions, we often are so codependent on others…. it’s very rewarding to say: ‘I am not their slave, I too have a life.’ and act accordingly.
