It’s called Five Minute Friday. Each week, we write freely on a one-word prompt, then link up at the amazing Kate Motaung’s site. It’s a flash mob of writers having fun and sharing their short take on one word. This week’s prompt is: Right
I was so sure of everything. Convinced I was right.
The lines seemed so clear. So black and white.
My angles were sharp. My convictions strong.
My side of the tracks. The right side of the tracks. The other’s wrong.
Hard bargains and wedges. Lines in the sand.
Always this or that. Up or down. In or out. Never and.
So blind. So much pride. So little empathy. Such fragility.
Until God’s grace. Jesus. Increased love. Humility.
