Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rest.” Use it any way you like. Enjoy!


I could have told you the rest of the story
But you didn’t want to hear it
Didn’t want to listen to what I had to say
So I took a break from talking
A rest from explaining myself to silence
And in my own quiet I realized something
That it wasn’t up to me to explain to anyone
How I choose to be, or why I choose to be
The soul that I truly am
It is only up to me
My ultimate responsibility
To be myself
The real me
