He had returned,
A little worse for wear,
Mind was made,
He would make them care,
Knew some how,
If someone can,
He would be the guy,
Scarred face now,
Pose of a man,
Again, set out to try.
Also influenced by a couple of word prompts:
Word of the Day Challenge: ransom
Fandango’s One Word Challenge: can
When I look at this photo and treat the mannequin as a person I see a young man, face a bit busted up, but still holding a pose of defiance. Imagined him standing up for some cause, being captured by the opposition and roughed up a bit, then ransomed back where he remains defiant, ready to head back to the forefront of his cause. I hope most of that came through in the poem.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your day!
