Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Power”


hang by forgottenx

A shift

The ground is no longer stable



We struggle to right our feet

But already the distance between us has grown

You stand first

Emboldened by speed and adaptability

You stoop, offering your hand

“I know what you need”

And I cling to you tightly

Seeking confidence where mine has been shaken

Stepping into an unspoken role

It continues

A guiding hand on my shoulder, this way

A scolding tone, I am wrong

Direction over suggestion

“I have your best interests in mind”

But I do not want to become you
