Another double post! Enjoy!
“I am grateful for the study times with RJ”
Sometimes getting out of the house is just what I need. It’s even better to have RJ to keep me company. Staying stuck in the house really does take a toll. So go outside, get some fresh air.
” I am grateful for writing poetry”
I’m not the best poetry, but we all can’t be. I’m learning every day new ways to improve my writing. Sometimes I have really bad days or the first draft is terrible. Nothing is perfect the first time. Practice leads to improvement.
National Gratitude Month
Day #7: Write a poem about something that makes you happy.
To hear you in the air is blissing
And I want to celebrate my sensitivities
Nothing has to be done
Just as long as we can hear
The words of your music, and music
And the taste of your knowledge
Who would have known
that entering here would be without effort
Separated is lost and silent
I feel the need to touch and hear again
Pluses with Vibrations
Collect our joys in the pockets we share
Sounds and music
Embraces our embraces
Beneath us is the soundscape
And to escape was our home
Approaching me and to you
Was the decision that struck the tempo
In our oceans of skins
In a girl and boy
Day #5: Write a Eulogy
It is coincidence that today is the day,
The day that it happened.
I talked about you yesterday when filing through passed names
Yours that my brother holds
but he never knew you.
Your skin was light and eyes blue, or green
I was too small to remember.
It is so hard to believe that you would end
That people even give ends to themselves.
I only remember your smiles and laughter
And the first time you took me on an errand to the mermaids coffee
And I wasn’t even tall enough to see past the car window.
You were a father
You were a husband
You were a brother
You were an uncle
You were a friend of all
Day #2: Write a poem/letter to your future self
You are something aren’t you, You think that no one can understand who you are
When sometimes you don’t even know who you are, but it’s okay. A cliche phase for everyone is that we never know and we’re so unsure. But it is okay.
It’s fine that you cry when your not “suppose to” and it’s fine when you don’t cry when you’re “expected to”. You struggle with thoughts and unhappy mindsets and it may seem like you have nothing. But there is nothing. Nothing in this world to make you perfect. Because perfect is unreal.
How are things for you? I hope everything is well, and I hope that you did the things you wanted to do. See the bands you wanted to see, watch the movies you planned to watch, read the books you meant to finish.
I told you that you would finish that assignment, and you see that everything is fine now. You worry too much, you’re not yourself when you’re too much.
It’s nice to talk to you from here. It’s quiet when it’s for us. When writing is the most we can do to silence our actions and focus on one.
I love you
I am thinking of starting a new challenge this upcoming month. However, it won’t be a daily song challenge, but a POETRY challenge. I wanted to start this so I can practice writing every day. I technically write every day in my English classes, but I feel that it doesn’t fulfill my creative outlet. I saw this specific challenge on this blog. It wasn’t in a text form so I went through the days and wrote down the challenge and created this picture 🙂
I am not sure if I want to start it during the last week of October or in the beginning of November (probably November). But you’ll know once I start posting from the first day. I will try my best to keep consistency! My passion is to write which is one of the reasons why I started this blog to post about my life, my poetry, and about music. I feel this project will help maintain creative flow. We all feel tired and stressed and sometimes we forget to do something for ourselves.
