Swimming in my sorrows, I’m obliged, I fear, to share them.
My friends all shrink away and hide, hoping I will spare them.
But worries are a mother lode, and each of us a piner,
tunneling into all our woes like a trauma miner.
Then relating all of them in streams without a comma,
turning everyone we meet into a surrogate momma.


Prompt words for today are swim, oblige, sorrow, miner and comma.

      Thanks, Andrea. This was done in an incredible hurry as I only had a short amount of time before we had to leave… Great incentive for using as many prompt words as possible in as few sentences as possible.
