Michael’s Tale Weaver Challenge this week is as follows:
This week write your response to the notion of “I Remember Once”….it could be a piece of nostalgia, it could be a reflection on your current situation if you are stuck at home or you write where the prompt takes you.
I remember once when life was simple
No stress or worries as someone else took the strain.
I remember once I had dreams of love and family,
But try as I might, my dreams turned to nothing.
I remember once having a job I loved,
Money in the bank, and friends with whom to socialise.
I remember once being out of work for months,
Alone and anxious, scared and insecure.
I remember once being afraid of my own shadow,
But someone turned on the lights and I could see.
I remember once meeting a stranger
But within minutes we were lifelong friends.
One chance in a lifetime that changed everything.
How well I remember.
