Inner Truth

BrewNSpew Cafe – Word Of The Week – Pretend

NaPoWriMo Challenge 2019 – Day 8 – April 8, 2019

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #43: Rain

The Haunted Wordsmith Opposites Attract Challenge – April 8, 2019

 I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work). 

Today’s word: underestimate.

Antonyms: overestimate, overrate, overvalue.

Espelho

While inside my heart there is rain

I pretend that on the outside

there are crystal blue waters,

sunshine, and lemon yellow blossoms

a facade to hide my secret pain

that I thought would help me

hold back the levee of tears…

~ * ~

But I underestimated the strength of the strain

and overestimated the weakness of my facade

I then realized that this plan was so very flawed

I knew I had to allow the unspoken words

of my heart to have their say

to transform my outer display

into my inner truth.
