We all struggle with things about ourselves or inside ourselves. Perhaps it is height or a health problem, a hot temper, a learning disorder, depression, loneliness, difficulty understanding other people, overwhelming grief or some kind of weakness. For this week's challenge I want you to write about this kind of personal challenge.
Write not about something in the environment around you or in your circumstances like lack of money or a parent who mistreated you, but about something about yourself that you have struggled with.
You might talk about what this struggle feels like, where it has taken you, how you have overcome it or how you still face it every day.
It can be something serious of course or something lighter, perhaps a small challenge you faced as a kid, like waiting to open your holiday presents or your anxiety about the first day of school.
I look forward to getting to know you a bit better through this challenge. Post your poem with Mr. Linky and then read what others have written.
