Fall is finally here – the leaves are changing colors, the temperature’s going down, and my favorite childhood movies are playing on T.V.. Whenever I’m not working, volunteering, doing course work, or watching Halloween movies I’m going to try to read all of the books. I always put off certain books because I think to myself “this would be a great Halloween read.”

There are also a few read-a-thons that I hope to participate in this month, and I hope that a few of these are able to fit into their challenges.

decisions, decisions

“i’m you, but from the future.”

there are a million

questions i want to ask,

but one thought pushes to

the forefront of my mind:

you decided to keep living.


April is National Poetry Month!

April is national poetry month, which was news to me. I found out about this through twitter, and shortly discovered that Amanda Lovelace and Cyrus Parker were going to be giving prompts each day of April over on their instagram accounts. They took turns, one giving prompts on the even days (Cyrus) and the other giving them on the odds days (Amanda).

As an aspiring writer and lover of poetry, I decided to participate and created my own poems using their prompts. The prompt for April 4th to “i’m you, but from the future.”

i have no spine:

i never tell you

what i think

or how i feel.

if i did you wouldn’t

like it at all.

so i remain silent,

just like you

taught me.

pushing the limits

maybe someday my

dreams will come true.

maybe my 11:11 wish

will finally be heard,

or maybe i’ll wish on the

right shooting star.

i’m beginning to lose hope;

how long can a person keep

going before they decide

that they just can’t anymore?
