Hello and welcome to the weekly prompts.
Because of work and school related issues this one is day late (and rather short) and I am currently thinking of moving the prompts back to the Friday next week to make it a little easier for me to upload the journals weekly.
Anyways let’s have a look at last week’s prompts.

The first prompt is ‘’A rocking chair’’ and the poem submitted to this prompts is called ‘’Ode to a rocking chair’’ by :icontanafeyroyale:
fav.me/d6j5zvc Ode To A Rocking ChairOld and young sit here
Seeking comfort and solace
Rocking back and forth
I help put babies to sleep
While mothers sing lullabies
I rock on my own
When a strong wind blows past me
Sometimes I will creek
Because I am getting old
And now am full of splinters


A fairly short and simple poem, with a nice flow and overall good wording.
People who have sat in a rocking chair (like myself) as a child or do nowadays will most likely appreciate this short poem.
A fun poem to read with a hint of nostalgia for some.

Since :icontanafeyroyale: also wrote the piece ‘’Nightmare’’ for the other prompt let’s continue with that one.
fav.me/d6j3r8n NightmareHave you ever been stuck in a nightmare?
Consumed with fear and doom
Horrors and monsters all around
Though you’re in your own bedroom
Shadows creep across the walls
A mirror reflects ominous light
The house creaks and the stairs groan
All through the night
Branches scratch the window
Is that a ghost or a dream?
The wind howls through the trees
Sounding like an eerie scream
No one wants to wake like this
Gone astray in this dreamlike state
Disoriented and forever lost
You are the monsters’ bait
Scared and alone you cower
With the sounds of your pounding heart
“Wake up, wake up” you tell yourself
“Before the creatures rip me apart”


A poem with a really nice pacing all throughout the poem and with a nice flow with some small rhyming throughout the entire poem.
Fairly simple yet again, however, made in such a way that it is relatable to everybody who has had one nightmare/bad dream at one point in their lives (which I am sure is the majority of the population).
Very nice, I would defiantly recommend it.

Next up is ‘’Slaughter of the Innocents’’by :icontommyboywood:
fav.me/d6ideax Slaughter of the InnocentsIn the field the children now lay,
peacefully, as if sound asleep.
The very ground where they would play,
would now their bodies ever keep.
The friends they knew across the way,
changed in but a wink of an eye.
A godless urge to kill and slay,
left the whole world wondering, WHY???
Tribe against tribe, soon it was done,
the innocents died where they stood.
Machetes and knives under the sun,
there were some who did what they could.
Listen...can you hear the wind whispering...
Mournful sighs and silent cries,
angels weeping from on high.
Demons spread their wings to fly,
their lust for blood now satisfied.

Some would blame God, some would blame man,
some prefer to turn a deaf ear.
The truth is that the Devil's plan,
is to rule planet earth with fear.
All of the children, all of the men,
all of the women and the old,
soon will awaken and then, only then...
will a new world of peace then unfold.
See them play on yonder hill,
moon above, shadows still.
Monsters dead, their bitter


A very powerful piece indeed that is not to be taken lightly by the reader.
Technically the poem is written quite well to be honest, it has a nice flow and is simply a poem that once started you have to keep on reading until the end.
I would suggest you go give it a read as soon as possible.

Last but not the least is ‘’Be witness to the great Awakening’’ by :iconmeowmeowwarior:
fav.me/d6j0ac4 :thumb394723156:

Too be quite honest I felt more like I was reading the prologue to a piece of prose rather than a piece of poetry at first, however, normally in a piece of prose there isn’t so much emphasis on sounds that are made meaning that we can still call this a piece of poetry rather than prose.
The piece is rather confusing at first, however, if you will re-read it will make more sense I assure you off that.
I would suggest you to read it because it is quite a unique and interesting piece.

Now for the new prompts:
#1 Headache, ever just had an annoying headache for an entire day? Well believe it or not but there is quite a lot you could write about having a headache. Why not give that a shot?
#2 Disabilities, this one is quite a fun one because many people have different opinions on what is actually a disability. (also might be fun if you leave in the comments on this journal your opinion on what is a disability and what isn’t).

That’s all for now!
Have a nice week and keep on writing!

I was wondering if a mention of this journal [link] could be made in your next prompt journal? We're holding a poetry contest and are in a bit of a bind as far as votes are concerned. If not, that's okay. Thank you for your time. ^_^
