Magaly’s Inspiration

Written for:  Friday Writings #31:  Genuine Ink

"For today’s prompt, if you wish to use it, I would like you to write poetry or prose inspired by the following lines: “be genuine / in life and ink / rebel against hypocrisy” (feel free to use the actual words, if you like):"

Be Genuine:  in truth
             in love
             in morals
             in friendships

In Ink:      you have power
             you can state your opinions
             you can laugh or cry, or touch someone else
             you can open your heart

Rebel:       against greed
             against prejudice
             against false news from false prophets
             against other's ideas of beauty
             against any "norm"

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. Amen! You tell it well, thank you.


  2. Absolutely! You get it so right in each section.


  3. And it is quite a joy when you can write something that reaches someone or rebel enough to correct a wrong, even just a little one.

    Hold fast to your beliefs and principles even if they are not popular.


  5. Rebelling “against other’s ideas of beauty” would create a world of happy, beautiful people. So, let’s!

    I left a comment yesterday, but it must have taken (or I might have forgotten to send it – real possibility). Your poem is wise and do-able.


  7. Lori says:

    Hear hear to this entire poem!

    A lovely to-do list for life!
