30-Day Poetry Challenge: Day 21

Day 21: Hidden Meaning – Write a poem that would be encouraging in some way to someone. Hide it somewhere that a stranger will find it.

I cannot say words
that will make it all OK,
that will make you believe,
that will comfort your mind,
but I say them anyway,
pulling back on the bow 
to shoot them like an arrow
that will pierce your doubts
and remind you that you are not alone.

About nikkimmascali

I am an editor, writer and New Yorker who has ink for blood and the blog name + tattoo to prove it. Also of note: I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. This is my blog about reading, writing and absolutely no 'rithmetic because I am horrendous at math.
