This week’s prompt is: Inner Voice
Every time that I open my mouth to sing I expect the voice of Louis Armstrong to come out. What I end up hearing is a thin, childish sounding, often slightly flat, voice, that’s good enough, but not satisfying to me. Often, if we haven’t seen ourselves in the mirror for a while we are surprised by the person that we see looking back at us. We expect someone more “beautiful” or more “ugly,” more “hot” or more “dull,” more “peaceful,” or more “rowdy,” but there we are standing as we always were. When our friends or associates react to our words in ways that we don’t expect we may feel misunderstood, feeling that they are not seeing the person that we truly are. So who are you really? What is the sound of your inner voice?
*Does your inner voice sound, look, or sing like a famous person? Is it a devil or an angel on your shoulder? Is there an internal panel within or is there a determined no nonsense decision maker? Tell us about it.
*Write a poem, story, or share a photo about your inner voice.
*Any inspired offering that somehow relates to your relationship with your inner voice.
Dungeon Prompts are meant to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit. Explore the recesses of your mind and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering. Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.
To participate, all you’ll need to do is:
1. Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”
2. Link back to this page in the body of your post *
3. Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!
*note: If the pingback doesn’t work, then please leave the link to your post in the comment section.
