I am always interested in exploring poetry forms that I’ve not attempted before, so the challenge of a Diatelle seemed perfect today. I read through several prompts early in the day and then let things just simmer for awhile before sitting down and writing this piece. I ended up using the prompt for day 4 from NaPoWriMo.
It may seem
Like you are just
About to break and scream.
Self-respect replaces disgust.
So follow your heart and learn to adjust.
Be courageous enough to question. Be bold
In your vision and soon you’ll learn to trust
The voice that tells you that you must
Do your thing. Build up steam
So you can bust
Through the seam
