Well hello again! I'm happy to say that I'm all caught up now with Brenda's weekly themes. I think birthdays bring out creativity. Week 29 offered the prompt, freedom. In true style, I ran far beyond the bounds and came up with something completely out of left field. This was a fun one to write and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Thank you Brenda!


a new skin

for a new place

maybe this will be the one

running away

suitcase in hand

I'll always win the chase

smarter, stronger

don't even try

you can test me

you'll never break me

guess this wasn't the one

no matter

pack up

move on

I'm the expert

and who needs a home anyway?

I've got plenty of skins

and I know just where to find more

secrets locked safe

one hand holding on

the other at the ready

you can test me

but you'll never break me

I'm always one step ahead

just out of reach

a new skin

in a brand new place...
