Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well. I wanted to share a poem that I wrote a long time ago (before I had my children) and had it self published into an anthology. I wanted to see my work printed in a book. Hopefully, one day when I really stop procrastinating and trying to be a perfectionist (when it comes to writing), I will be a published writer with an actual salary.
The words are self-explanatory and the person who inspired me to write this is real.
The last poem I wrote was about two years ago and it was pretty emotional. It was inspired by a phone call I received from my sister who had just been given the news of a friend’s passing. She was very distraught and I wanted to physically comfort her, but I was at home with no means of reaching her quickly. I did my very best to express how sorry I was for her loss and that I wanted her to be safe. It was very hard to hang up, but we promised to keep each other updated. I sat in my living room alone for a while and in order to release the sadness inside of me, I picked up a notepad and started writing. I haven’t written anything new simply because I’m not as disciplined in writing as I should be. I am trying to change that though. One day at a time.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
