Things to Think About
Tonight is a bad night,
Enough to let my thoughts collide
And my heart burn with unsaid fears.
I’m so scared of losing,
But also myself in the roller coaster.
I don’t want to fall back,
Into the people I’ve been.
But my hair grows longer as the days do,
and I can’t help myself but smile,
That good things are coming,
Along with the sunshine.
In my heart of hearts,
I wonder if I’m making mistakes.
But in my bones,
I know, the sun is coming.
Sure as laughter,
Splashes of color,
Finishing a story,
Putting the cover back on a book.
A part of me wants to stay in the adventure forever,
Hold you close and let you comfort me.
The pages flutter,
The notes collect,
And a semester’s worth of love and dreams and hope for a better tomorrow,
Is woven into your pages.
Today I close the chapter,
With a smile.
Today, I am the stuff dreams are made on,
set me free.
I took risks.
Ran around in the sunshine,
Enjoyed the simplicities,
Playing along the air.
Is not today,
Without all of you.
I smile, because you are my friends.
Hello, all my lovely readers! Thank you for following my challenge and reading my work. I’ve successfully written a poem a day for all 30 days of April, and I’m super proud. However, I feel like this blog is still growing.
I’ve been debating for a few weeks about what to do after April ends and the challenge is over. I think I saw this continuing past April when I first came up with the idea, but I didn’t want to be too ambitious (being a college student is busy work.) Therefore, I’m going to keep posting poems as much as I can – maybe not daily, but we’ll see. I’m excited to see this grow and myself to grow as a writer.
Thank you again for following this challenge, and happy reading of poems to come!
Shadows in the Sunshine
It’s dark and quiet now,
Too much space inside my mind to think.
Of tomorrow, of the future.
I know I have nothing to worry about,
But today there are shadows in the sunshine.
I hope for a better world.
I mustn’t give up,
