Sunday Writing Prompt #229 “Collage 37”

The quote “In each of us there is another whom we do not know.” Carl Jung
The challenge details:

Who am I? I no longer know.
Once, so long ago, I had grace and beauty.
Such a far cry from the raggedy kid from the rundown backstreets of my childhood.
I denied this poorer being, chose not to nurture it and pushed it to the back of my mind.
But fate has a way of catching up with you, worse than washing your dirty metaphoric laundry in public.
My hands are now wizened, boney and dry. Gone is the grace and beauty they once exuded in my dance.
You stand before me, this haunting memory of my former self, stripped of all pretense and fame.
Was I ever real?


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
