Weekend Writing Prompt #32 – Reflection

Challenge

Prose Challenge – Write a story in 150 words where a character sees their reflection and is surprised by what they find.

Poetry Challenge – Write an acrostic poem, where the first letter of the first word of each line spells out “reflection” as it is read from top to bottom.

REFLECTION

Reflection of inner thoughts

Escapes not

From wise eyes

Let, then,  reflect

Empathy and compassion

Care and  love

Trust and gratitude

In your eyes

Or wear the real face with courage

Never deceit with a mask

 

Writing 101, Day 4- Window

Window- A Door To Freedom

‘My window is a door to my freedom’

So she thinks

Sometimes

When depressed

Freedom from all her woes and problems

Though it takes a lot of courage

To end one’s life

Her mind wanders away

Searching for an excuse

To drive away the negative thoughts

She thinks how she would look

Lying down there

All dismantled

Drowning in her own blood

It gives her a fright

Her courage lefts her

Wisdom seeps in

It reminds her

It’s not a nice way to die

Without fighting

No problem comes without a solution

Life is beautiful

Don’t waste it like that

Everyone loves a fighter

Not a loser

Don’t give up so easily

Count your blessing

It’s enough to change her mind

ForThePromptless – S. 2, Ep. 1 – The Alter Ego

Alter Ego/ personality disorder

I am Indira’s alter ego speaking, knowing fully well that she will never write this post herself. She was all against it thinking who wants to know about her, she not a famous personality etc.

I told her that even if nobody reads it, at least she will know about me and now is the time to acknowledge me.

She is full of inferiority complex, little coward afraid of fights, darkness, ghosts and everything. Whenever she was lonely, depressed and thought death is the final solution of her sickness and problems.Only I know what is she under the cool as cucumber mask.   It was me, who gives her strength, courage and hope to come out of darkness, face her fears and fight with them.

She is  shy, afraid of going out , speaking in public, always worrying for her near and dear ones, her friends and relatives. She thinks she is supposed to be perfect all the time and this gives her a lot of stress. I taught her that being not perfect is all right.

She does not participates in any thing for the fear of loosing. I taught her that you sometime win , sometimes  you do not, but the joy of participating is bigger than everything.

Her happiness lies  on others happiness. She feels guilty enjoying anything alone. I taught her that to be happy, enjoying things in life,  is not a sin. She is shy of  Expressing her  views fearing she may hurt others. I taught her that even if you don’t agree with others is all right, she must stand for whatever she thinks is right.

I always have to be vigilant to keep her on the right track. Actually I always have to do overtime with her , even if I take a wink  she will go inside her shell like a turtle.

Life is a journey

Full of challenges and fights

Face it with courage

No shortcuts for victory

No shortcuts for victory

 

Quality Speaks

Posted on

Little ego for self-esteem
Patience when you go off beam
Stubbornness when you think you are just
Politeness is always a must
Hunger for success in life
Grace when there is strife
Anger to stand when someone is abused
Presence of mind when you are confused
Righteousness when there is a fight
Calmness when the situation is tight
Little selfishness to make yourself happy
Peace of mind so you are not snappy
A conscience to stay away from vice
Strength when difficulties arise
