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.
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.
