A Poem A Day

Write a poem a day
To light up my mind
With puns and wordplay
With the pleasure of rhyme
Put a smile on my face
With each new line

Like a puzzle of logic
See how pieces fit
Move them around
Til I like the sound of it

Til it ebbs and flows
Off the tongue
it rolls

Til it touches my soul
Hits a chord
Takes its toll

Til it improves my mood
And brings a new attitude

One Year Blogiversary! The Poem

image

Blow out the candles
Make a wish
Cheer and smile
At what’s been accomplished!

It’s been a year
Since my first post
I’ve learned so much
Let’s give a toast!

From funny stories
To heartfelt poems
From frustrated writer
To working from home

So much I’ve learned
So much I’ve grown
The new friends I’ve made
Help me not feel alone

Thanks for sharing
This journey with me
Thanks for caring
And coming to see

You’ve made this awesome
You’ve made this great
Now let’s turn one year
Into eight!

Happy Blogiversary, everyone!

Unexpected Curveballs

Unexpected curveballs
That life throws
What’s up always falls
Thats just how it goes

Sad so sad
When things go so badly
Turmoil, turmoil
Twists up inside me

Saddened, sickened
Embittered and stricken

Crawl into bed
Hide from the world
Or get it out of my head
With the rhyme of a word

Think fast
Think past
The pain of the moment
Come up with a plan
Then follow through, own it

Fall Like Leaves

The days steadily progress
career wise for the best
but not so much for the rest

Feeling a weight on my chest
Feeling a pull towards a quest
Beginning to realize
To see with open eyes
That this is still a mess

I did what I had to
To get us all through

But now summer is over
Fall is setting on this life

Built up my walls
But now like leaves they all fall
Pushing me towards the call
Dont feel exposed at all

Instead Im free
And now I see
Its not regret
Its opportunity
To finally be me
