  • If you post a response before next Sunday, Sadje will be able to add it to her roundup post.
  • Sadje will do a round-up next Sunday before the next Prompt is posted.
  • It is always helpful if you can give your post/story/poem a title.
  • Paste a link of your post in the comments section so that Sadje doesn’t miss anyone in the roundup post.

Hey stranger, what do you see?
A killer
with no blood on my hands—
A criminal
shoved behind bars—
A cheater
with nothing to hide—
A thief?

Or instead, do you see
an artist
head full of ideas—
a dreamer
heart full of hope—
someone to love,
a fellow human being?

It’s unfortunate
that things must be
so black and white.
It’s unfortunate
we still have to fight,
to stay above the surface,
to say what is right.

So tell me, stranger,
what do you see?
Is it someone else?

Or is it me?



An aspiring writer, among many other things. Loves crafting memorable, heartwarming slice-of-life stories. Enjoys creating magical, fantastical adventures for readers to immerse themselves in!
