actions speak louder than words,
but what if you can’t take
action or use your voice?
being able to take action
and speak up are privileges
that some people don’t have.
April is National Poetry Month!
April is national poetry month, which was news to me. I found out about this through twitter, and shortly discovered that Amanda Lovelace and Cyrus Parker were going to be giving prompts each day of April over on their instagram accounts. They took turns, one giving prompts on the even days (Cyrus) and the other giving them on the odds days (Amanda).
As an aspiring writer and lover of poetry, I decided to participate and created my own poems using their prompts. The prompt for April 5th is to take a cliche, make it your own.
