Just me, by Britta Benson

Here’s my response to The Procrastinators’ Five-Word-Challenge.

The five words to be used in a poem or story were: frown, basic, worry, pick, word. You can find the full prompt blog by clicking on this link: https://theprocrastinators58220236.wordpress.com/2022/10/02/sunday-writing-prompts-give-us-a-clue/

Just me

I pick a word,
a start,
any will do for the now. 
A word, a worry.
I’ve got this all wrong.
I frown, I stare,
change my word,
first choices never any good.
What do I know?
My word, 
ridiculous,
far too basic,
simple, truth.
Far too me,
insignificant.
Minute, a speck.
I pick a word,
a start,
then doubts roll in.
I must remember:
It’s okay to go smaller still,
beyond the speck,
more ridiculous.
What am I hiding?
Just me.
