Hey there everyone.
I’m participating in NaPoWriMo 2020, if you aren’t following the NaPoWriMo website already then go check it out at www.napowrimo.net.
For my final ‘finale’ poem of the entire month, I have gone back to where I started from and decided to use the incredible Anne Sexton as my inspiration once again. You can read the poem that I used for my inspiration below.
Finally, here is my own inspirational found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!
“Being You for the First Time” by David Ellis It’s in the small things We see it, as an earthquake The first time When your heart went crazy You concealed weakness, inside Courage saved you Endured despair You did it alone From fire, your heart Wringing out your sorrow Gave you wings Roses, each spring Be you, live Love and bargain with the moment When you’ll stride out
