Day 9 #OctPoWriMo and #FOWC – Breaking Boundaries with Dignity

Octpowrimo’s theme is breaking boundaries and FOWC’s word is dignity.

I don’t think my brain followed the path that was intended. But I used the form Diamante This diamond-shaped poem always has seven lines. Click Diamante to see how it is supposed to be constructed. I also had several other thoughts that I wrote down.

Walls
High, Thick
Surrounding, Enclosing, Crumbing
Boundaries……………………………………..Curtains
Watching, Opening, Shattering
Transparent, Unshuttered
Windows

*

Breaking or keeping boundaries requires dignity.
I had no boundaries
People walked all over me
I gained some dignity
Spoke my truth
Boundaries are now fluid
Closed when needed
Yielding at other times

*

Posting, Trolling
Boundaries, None
Dignity, Pretentious
Quiet, Loudness
Silence, Justification

*

Breaking Boundaries
Positive vs Negative
Vulnerable vs Word Vomit
Dignity vs Pretentious
Speaking up vs Angry defense

Do you think I covered the title of Breaking Boundaries with Dignity?
