NAPOWRIMO Day 7: I Blow It Also

I do not blame you for your emotional state. I, too, feel strongly. It is what makes me both powerful and relatable. You need not be ashamed about having a difficult time dealing with your emotions. You are not holding anyone but yourself responsible. You are so kind and genuine. Of course, you feel deeply! Everyone has a bad day. This does not define you. I feel honored that you look to me for strength and wisdom, but know sometimes I blow it also.

Author’s Note: NaPoWriMo Prompt – Write a list of all of your different layers of identity. These are all ways you could be described or lenses you could be viewed through. Now divide all of those things into lists of what makes you feel powerful and what makes you feel vulnerable. Now write a poem in which one of the identities from the first list contends or talks with an identity from the second list.
