Creative Prompt: Confinement


Welcome to Wordsmith Studio’s Weekly Prompt!

Every Thursday we’ll post a new topic for your creative pleasure.  When you get a good flash story, memory, poem, or photo (or three, or five) post them to your blog, website, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Then come back here and post a link to your contribution(s) in the comments.

This Week’s Theme is: Confinement

There was a time in my life when I placed myself into confinement. Not purposely…but I built a wall around my heart and mind. Year after year, I would add another row. This wall became so high that my family and friends could no longer reach me.

I didn’t even realize as I was building this wall, that I was placing myself in jail. I stayed there for many years, depressed and lonely. Then, one day…one instant…one person broke through and told me exactly what I needed to hear for me to realize that I WAS in charge of me. I needed to make a change. I had physically and mentally confined myself and it was time to set myself free.
