Well hello world :) How’s 2016 treating you so far? I’m pretty excited about all the things that are going to happen this year (expected and unexpected. Follow the hashtag #infinitepossibilitiesproject for deets!) and one of those involves me finally getting off my ass and finishing (haha ok, starting) my book!
SOOoooo, in a valiant attempt to kickstart the pink typewriter in my head, I’m taking a friend’s advice and baring my soul (aka my poetry, eeps!) that I have written since I was 9 years old. To be honest, I’m petrified. I’ve never really shared much of it with anybody. So please be gentle with my heart (but I suppose if you cannot, then it will just give me more heartbreak to write about, so that works too!) Here we go, kicking off with one you might have seen if you read The Reader’s Digest in the early 90s haha and my only published poem….
A single ray of sunlight
for a thousand memories of pain
a single happy fave
for millions filled with disdain
we meant to last forever
but forever never came
when miracles cease to happen
the truth will soon become plain
no candle lasts forever
only memories of the flame…
Right, are the juices flowing yet? Come on Ewan McGregor, do your thing!
