Velvet Verbosity: Haunting

There are those who might describe it as a guilty conscience. But I see it as reflection.

How do you practice redemption for transgressions committed in your youth; when you didn’t know better? When you were ruled by hormones, ignorance, and the life you were living?

I am trying to make amends by living a more conscientious life.

I am not alone. I see it in the eyes of my peers. We are examining our lives; and cursed by the hurt our actions have wrought.

We can strive to be more loving and giving but the past is always Haunting.


This post is in response to the 100 word writing challenge Velvet Verbosity where we are asked to write 100 words inspired by a single prompt. This week’s word is Haunting.

  1. I don’t think you meant this, but your piece made me think of the banks and what they’ve done to the housing market. I hope they have been “cursed by the hurt [their] actions have wrought”!
