The Beings We Became

A 30 day poetry challenge that I stumbled upon while trawling #poertycommunity on Instagram. Created by Tyler Kent White and Amanda Torroni in honor of National Poetry Month USA.

Broken into three sections - the past, the present and the future - each prompt was to be linked to the person you were, are, wish to be.  This was my birthing as an instapoet. Though it sometimes felt self-indulgent, making myself write and post shifted a deeply held belief that my words had to be perfect. With misspellings, missed auto-corrects, missed taglines and all, these are truely the beginings of my being.
