One of these days I will finish one of my books, and it will be spectacular!
Good night world
Wake me with gentle hands
I shall see you at first light
But for now, let me sleep
All my medical stuff taken care of
Things are getting sorted into what to keep and what stays behind
Buying all the essential technology that I need
Pushing away the butterflies in my tummy
Africa will be here before I know it…I only hope I am prepared!
She has taken the unspoken words in my heart and made them real
no one reads my poetry anymore, it makes me sad
“BOOM, here comes the BOOM,” rattled through the walls
A groan could be heard over the roar of the music
You could see the pure exhaustion on his face as he pushed the bar over his head.
He let out a loud roar as his arms locked out, then BOOM
BOOM as her barbell hit the floor
It bounced once, twice
She pushed through, picked up the bar and threw it overhead
The sound came of the most pure joy
The double beep, the beep that told him it was over, he made it
They collapsed to the floor, the music silenced
In awe of their efforts the walls breathed with them
They lie staring at the ceiling, staggering breaths raging through their chests
It was almost as though you could hear the heartbeats hammering against their ribs
As the sweat poured down her face and dropped to the floor
It was her payment
Payment to the box that held her dreams
The sweat was her gift, the give she offered for the sacrifice the ground made beneath her feet
He picked himself up, dusted himself off and gave a proud clap to all those who survived
To all of those who finished
I am writing about you again, which means you are on my mind. I hate you for that.
The words I write can only say, all the good in my heart has learned from today. I can only hope that with each passing hour my poetry becomes stronger with every breath I take. I will be on a journey soon that will change my life forever. I leave in three months time for the continent of Africa, country Togo. I will be there for two years counting my blessings that I have earned such an experience. I have been accepted into the peace corps and it is only the utmost honor. I only hope that I can make an impact on each person I meet, and in return they will impact me.

“Create something that will make the world Awesome!”
I would like to be best friends with that little kid, because he knows what its all about
She looks out into the softly falling snow
The keys of the piano tap out a soft lullaby
She pulls the blanket tighter around her
Searching the sky for a sign of summer
It came in a letter
This sign of hope
For warmer days, for brighter skies
The hope guides her
It will get her through
This dark and cold season called winter
