Frustration

sol#SOL17 Day 26

To conquer frustration one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles. ~T.F. Hodge

 

I got  this prompt from Rip the Page by Karen Benke.  I purchased the book after I saw another idea used by another slicer!

Frustration

Frustration, with her sick sense of humor,

waits to appear until I am trying

to accomplish a task.

She giggles when something

is beyond my grasp.

She chuckles when I stumble.

She brings along her close friends,

annoyance, irritation, and exasperation.

They speak in hushed whispers

secretly laughing at my inability

To complete the job at hand.

Together they mock me,

unknowingly make me more resolute.

  1. This post is not getting enough attention. You described frustration perfectly. I love how you called out her friends and, in the end, vowed to win! Superb personification!
