It is Colleen’s turn this week to choose the prompt word for her and Ronovan’s Writer’s Quote on Wednesday Challenge, and she has come up with ‘rebirth.’ I found this wonderful quote by Anne Frank which I can very much relate to:

I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn

-Anne Frank


When I sit here writing

I can be who I want to be

I can go on long adventures

Or I could solve a mystery

The timid little person

Who is so very shy

Could become a mighty warrior

Or perhaps a Super Spy!

I could make myself a hero

Who always saves the day

Or perhaps an evil villain

Who gets more twisted every day.

What about a princess

Who is a stunning beauty?

Or a blowsy, brassy barmaid

Whose language is quite fruity!

A skittish, social butterfly

An astronaut in space

The chairman of a company

A woman of style and grace!

Yes, when I sit here writing

I can be who I want to be

Not this mousey little person

But a reborn, flawless Me!
