Write or Die Wednesdays

Last week's link-up was about something we all hold dear: music! The way certain songs transport us to past times, places and feelings is something we all had in common. If you missed the linkup, feel free to check out the posts here!

This week's prompt is as follows:

Write a short story or poem using this image as inspiration!

Don't forget, you have five days to link-up! If you have not prepared a post for today, feel free to join us tomorrow or in a few days. We'd love to see what you come up with!

P.S. Have you joined the Write or Die Book Club yet? It's a quarterly book club focused on books about writing, creativity, inspiration, and more! We hope you'll join us! Click on the photo below to cast your vote for our first book. We'll begin reading on April 1st.

Happy writing!!!


The light shines through
But it fails to warm
My thoughts are suffocating
I look out at the world with equal parts hope and despair
Time is passing as time always does
Without regard for me at all
My misery is a constant companion
I fear that success will never find me
My dreams remain elusive
What can I accomplish
When will it happen
Patience is the answer they always say
But waiting is futile
I want to conquer
I want to flourish
I want to grow
The light is my resolve
The rays fuel my determination
The window of opportunity is before me
I will open it and welcome the sunlight
