Another poem written in response to a prompt. This time it was to write on the topic of ‘Default setting’. The image is courtesy of an artist called Gloria on Pixabay.


My default setting

Anger, red raw.

Rage at unfairness.

Poor me.

Pity party.

Don’t care. Don’t care.

Repeat until I believe it.


Then you, original code

Soft words of compassion

Love unrestricted

Paid for a reset

On my default condition

All I had to do

Was say yes.


Offer accepted

Program uploaded

Forgiveness, not fury

Compassion for justice.

Experience now wealth.

Value in myself.

Grace overcomes

Repeat ’til the world believes it.
