To frailty
There is a power
Borne of compassion

When compassion fails
Frailty is where the boot comes down
The hardest

A response to Mindfills post Would You Read Me in the Thesaurus Game.

Mindfills responded to the word “Foible” and chose the synonym “Failings”. From the synonyms of “Failings” I chose “Frailty”.

Want to play the advanced game? Use your chosen synonym as inspiration to create a new blog post: words, images, sound, video … just about anything, really.

You can think of this game as a one-word creativity prompt. Rather than give you the one word, I’m giving you a list of synonyms to choose your one word from.

I’ll post new words on Thesaurus Gamefrequently. Probably not daily, but often. However, there’s no hourglass counting down the time you have left. Feel free to play any word at any time.

If you create something I think is really cool, I’ll ask if we can repost it on Thesaurus Game, as a new word for others to play.

Here are the rules.
