August 22, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story exploring shame as an emotion or theme. Consider how to use shame to drive a cause-and-effect story. How does it impact a character? Is there a change? Go where the prompt leads!
Don’t wield the weapon of guilt, don’t make me wear rags of regret and the ashes of shame.
Your views and mine are vastly different and making me ashamed of my choices, will make us part ways forever.
You don’t own me. We all have the right to live our lives as we think right. Making me feel that my choices are to be condemned is your failure.
Look in the mirror and you’ll look at a hypocrite, who needs to wear that cloak of shame more than me, for usurping my right to choose.
Live and let live!
