Be Not Afraid

An acrostic poem for today’s prompt by Josie Elbiry

Walking on the wild side these days

In this upside-down world, it seems

Life is crazy in so many ways

Don’t be afraid, just dare to follow your dreams.

Thanks as always to Kathy, Harper, and the entire Chalkboard team!

I love these weekly prompts, they allow me to stay active here on Medium even with my limited time these days. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of the prompt!
