Assignment: Create and incorporate context and a metaphor for the phrase “Sally is a prime number between 17 and 23” into a poem

by imlikeabirdillonlyflyaway

Sally is a prime number between 17 and 23.

She is on the cusp of life,

Of  freedom,

Of opportunity.

However,

She is to be thrust into an unwelcoming world

Filled with corruption,

Despair,

And broken dreams;

But

Her life doesn’t have to turn out that way

Because, remember, she is only on the brink

Of all of this opportunity.

Whether good or bad,

It is up to her and

The decisions

She makes.

She is ready;

She will choose.

Sally is a prime number between 17 and 23.
