Weakness (an acrostic poem)

Weeping muscles wailed at their fate

Every ounce of her being willed the boulder up the hill

Almost there she felt it slip away.  She sunk to his quivering knees

Knowing she had failed once again and the stone awaited her below

Pretend (a 50 word post)

Let’s play a game of pretend.  Pretend you are a better person.  Pretend you are kind.  Pretend you are smart.  Pretend that you matter.  Keep pretending a bit more each day.  My daughter pretends to be a princess every day, and I believe her.  Make the world believe in you.
