Creative Journaling Prompt: Write a free verse poem describing a time when you overcame an obstacle.
Here is my poem:
The night, a slithering snake.
Long enough to devour my consciousness.
I didn’t know how to escape the clutches of its fangs.
Wondering if I would ever escape its scales. One scale already a month’s worth of traveling. Sleepless.
Would I ever see the day where the snake, Insom, slithers away.
I concentrate. Focus. Sit where Insom rests in the subconscious realm.
I catch her and lock her away for a night.
I can finally rest and step into another realm where I’m free.
I can see the sun again.
The brightness hurts my eyes.
