Found Poem No. 47: Belonging

The blackout poetry challenge on Instagram this week was to “Vertically Challenge” ourselves: to use one word from each line of a text, directly under the previous word, to make a vertical “ladder” poem.

I broke a few rules.

The text is from Brené Brown’s latest book, Braving the Wilderness, which my daughter gave me for Christmas. Unlike most blackouts that completely change the meaning of an original text, this one is true to its spirit. I hope Brené would approve.
