I can’t believe I am going to do this. I feel like I’m posting a naked picture of myself or something. 😕 ew.
I told Ed and Ric once several months back that I had folders of poems I had written a LONG time ago. Back during that “writer” phase. I also said once we unpacked I’d put a few up on my blog. After my “identity” post the other day I started going through boxes and found some. Instead of overloading my blog with a bunch of teenage angst all at once, I thought I’d do it over the course of several posts. I also found a collection of poems that I saved from any and everywhere. I want to add those too because they are some of my favorites. Here’s some to get this party started. 😉
The price I must pay
for this profit is loss
but you could not explain this logic

I know it is right in the sight of
but my heart is dying to differ
It cries and it screams
and it breaks all day long
and the nights are far gone from better
I awake from my sleep
to a tear soaken pillow
and heart that has been shattered
waiting for mend
As I lay there and think
“my life is on end”
God sends me a peace
I am not sure when I wrote that. It was in highschool sometime, as pretty much all of them were. You know, in highschool the world is just so dramatic and earth shattering. 😆 However, I’m still quite dramatic. Just this morning I had a bit of a dramatic flare up when I discovered the epiglottis in Aidan and Dylan’s throat. That’s a post for another time. Call me stupid, but I didn’t even know that ugly thing existed.
Here’s another for your viewing pleasure. 😉 I had to write a poem in language arts class about a chapter in the book Snow Falling On Cedars. Here is what resulted….
Drawing up for myself
in the silence of my mind
a list of the things
now cluttering my heart…..
father is gone
soon everyone with a
on San Piedro will
be sent away
until the war is over
I have a hakujin boyfriend
I can only
On top of these
Mom has only hours before
probed into the pit of her soul
discovering her deep uncertainty.
Reading that now, I have NO CLUE what any of that means. HAHA!! 😆
Okay, I’m cringing. Feedback people. *eyes clamped shut*
