Blink: Life is Poetry

#strongwomen #writer #author #entrepreneur #blog #blogger #canadian #alberta #poetry #anthology #poems

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. It helped me deal with darkness, and express my angst, in a quick, efficient way compared to writing entire scenes in a story. Blink: Life is Poetry is a notebook of 143 poems that I wrote in fifth and sixth grade. Maybe seventh. I’m not going to put all of them online, as some of them are too identifying, and I don’t want to embarrass anyone other than myself. But it’s been an interesting glimpse through time. I can’t believe how dramatic I was, and how seriously I took some things. Because back then, I truly thought that what I was thinking and feeling was ultimate reality. But I still feel for little me, just trying to navigate the world. That girl would be happy to see that so many people appreciate her poetry now!

Have fun, leave a comment, and let me know if you’ve experienced anything in these poems.

  • #117 The Parody

  • #116 Pen to Paper
    Random words I throw together All tied up with a broken tether They have no meaning that I can see I have no idea what they will be. They sound cool, so I write them down I like the way they feel and sound Then ten years later I understand The […]
  • #109 Another Day
    What’s the point of talking when you think that I’m a fake? What’s the point in compliments that you refuse to take? How can I be happy when the sky is cold and grey? How can I be happy when I’m so sad today? What’s the point in honesty when this […]
