Day 18, Incredibly Late

Let the word roll around in a brain for moment, then write about it for ten minutes – fiction, nonfiction, or poetry.

Writing Prompts: One Word Inspirations

Crawl

———————————————————–

Crawling

We crawl when we can’t walk

We crawl when we’re desperate

We crawl when we have no other choice

I’ll crawl if I have to,

I’ll crawl if it’s easier

I’ll crawl if I feel like it

To make you laugh

To make it there faster

To amuse myself

I won’t be held bound by your cultural strictures

I won’t pretend that I’m like you

I won’t stand so firm that I break

I’ll crawl like a willow, like bamboo, and

I’ll live to see another day.
