Weekend Writing Prompt #115 – Judge

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.  Thank you, Sammi, for hosting this weekly party.

Word Prompt

Judge

Challenge

How dare you stand there and judge me

You point your finger

Take pleasure in telling me

That I am stupid

That I am wrong

You tell me I’ve failed

In how I raise my kids

In how I look

In how I keep my house

Whom I choose to bed

How I live my life

You’ve allowed outside forces to distort what you see

Don’t you know loving kindness goes much further?

Use words of love rather than judgment and hate

Time to stop

When you stand in front of the mirror

Speak kindly
