I’m going to need to find a way to balance this whole blogging and schoolwork thing. I’ve realized that the nights I have a lot of writing to do, I’m too burnt-out to write anything of interest to anyone. I’m taking two separate writing classes next semester and I hate to double dip my school writing with my blog writing but I might if I come up with anything GOOD. Meh. I’m nearing on day 200 of consecutive daily posts, in case you were wondering. Five or so days away, so don’t let me forget to acknowledge it when it comes on the 13th, okay? Deal.
This evening (well, morning for me), I’d like to share with you all a lovely gem my dear Madison Morgan wrote a few days ago. She’s an absolutely stellar writer, and challenges me to be a better writer and better person on a daily basis. Just want to send some love her way and share a little bit of her heart with you all.
Her post was titled “A Detritus of a Poem”
Little notes with loopy letters
Tiny pictures with smallish smiles
X’s on days that won’t get better
Cracks and stains on kitchen tiles.
Our days, they come and go
Quickly, fleeting, passing by
I know that you sure won’t
Be stopping by for a while.
The times we are the happiest
The ones we will never know
The moments that I missed
The days that I can show
The weakness that we’re feeling
All of us, we’re here
In touching and in seeing
Eachother we are near.
I’ve yet come to my close
And this is what I say
That because I’m here with you
I need to live today.
