I’m pulling this writing prompt from The Daily Post; a website that hosts an especially useful daily writing prompt exercise featuring one word.
Once I have the mental energy, I’m going to start making this a daily routine.
Can I press pause?
Would you think less of me,
if I stepped away?
Can I stop?
Is my weakness hidden;
or is it like a scarlet letter plastered on my chest?
I need a break;
am I the only one feeling this way?
I need a minute;
is the stench of my failure overpowering?
I don’t know if I can do this.
Is it normal to doubt yourself this much?
I need to press pause,
before this life suffocates me.
