100 Words On Saturday 6


Introduced in February 2013 – an invitation, a prompt, a linky. Write exactly a 100 words on the prompt and publish it on your blog – a story, a poem, a mini-essay. The linky will be open right up to next Friday, after which I will have a new prompt and a fresh linky.

100 Words On Saturday 6 Prompt : I WAS BORN

tiny foot
I was born to be free,
Why did allow myself to be so tied up?
I was born to be loved,
Why did I become so needy?
I was born to be precious,
Why did I give myself away so cheaply?
One day I realized it was up to me
To change.
And then I was born again
With new eyes to see my own beauty
A new heart to love myself first
A new self that freed my old self
From pain, hurt, guilt
I was born to be free, loved and precious
I was born to be Me.

    Loved the poem and the sentiments. Good advice too. A tough topic though, will have to ponder awhile on this one.

    I love to think that we are (re)born everyday 🙂 Physically, perhaps, just one time…but the ‘metanoia’ is an invitation to be born again and again… The theme is so beautiful and so are your six words BS!

    I was born to be loved,
    Why did I become so needy?
    I was born to be precious,
    Why did I give myself away so cheaply?

    Could see so much of me in these lines. Very well-written Corrine.
