Firing Back

An insult she heard

So deeply cutting

So deeply scarring

Tried to fire back

But the rebound missed

The firing words

They remain trapped inside

When she swiftly turns to the room

And yells out for her life

“I am free! Hear my ferocious roar!”

Those chains have been broken

Drawing A Blank

I’ve never read The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs but I can tell it is a good book. The cover art is interesting in that there is one desk colored yellow, maybe symbolizing Caroline Jacobs? Yellow is a color for cowards, so maybe she worked up the courage for something? The other seats all being blue has something to do with conforming to the standards, so Caroline must have rebelled?
