DigiWriMo (Day 2): I have borne my sadness #digiwrimo

I have borne my sadness

This November, David and I are taking part in #digiwrimo. What’s #digiwrimo? It’s Digital Writing Month, “a 30-day adventure through the world of digital narrative and art”. Here’s what the website says (although we recommend you visit to read much, much more and get some great ideas):

Digital Writing Month is a (somewhat) insane month-long writing challenge, a wild ride through the world of digital writing, wherein those daring enough to participate wield keyboard and cursor to create digital projects of text, image, and/or sound in the thirty days of November. Modeled after the inspirational National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), DigiWriMo asks writers to be creative not just with their words, but also with other digital media —image, video, and sound — and with what those media can do. We will work to redefine “writing” in the digital, and not confine it only to words, but open up the possibilities of narrative and exposition within multimedia and multimodal projects. Where that “writing” resides, what it looks like, how it interacts with other works and authors, is entirely up to the wild imaginings of each DigiWriMo participant.

Day 2: I have borne my sadness

I have borne my sadness

I have borne my sadness
Not like an anchor
But as a talisman

A reminder that one can soar
High and free, far and fast
Against the odds

The weight of my sadness
Has not defined me
But simply propelled me

I have borne my sadness
I have owned my sadness
I have tamed my sadness
