The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 27 – Unleash Your Inner Strength

Feb 27

Day 27 – and the prompt is “Paint the Image” with a haiku. Folks can you believe there are only two days left for this challenge to conclude?

But first, a haiku for my fellow haiku challenge participants, visitors, readers, and the amazing people who commented:
“I’m convinced I got 
this far just through  your support! 
How can I thank you?”
Here’s Day 27:

Unleash Your Inner Strength

Iron bars are no 
match for will  power. Step out
Or stay back. Your choice.
Inside? Outside? Just
A point of view. Perception
Will help you decide.
No matter how strong 
the door. No matter which side 
you see, there is Hope.
Take inspiration
From the star on the iron 
Bar. Stretch. Fly. Transcend.
