Hello everyone and happy 2018! I can scarcely believe how fast time seems to pass. Today isn’t just about welcoming the New Year, this post is actually a poem dedicated to one of my dear friends whom I am separated from by circumstances and also an update about my personal life. I am not in the habit of doing these sort of posts, but I figured you all might enjoy seeing some adorableness (my cat, not me, let me be clear,
although in all fairness…).
To Rain: Introduction paragraph
It’s been a while since we’ve shared a laugh, a smile, or a breath of air. How has the air been where you are? I know mine is fraught with memories. Memories that become blurred as time passes. I cannot seem to stop the fog from rolling in…
To Rain: A Poem
in a filling restaurant,
as 2018 bells ring,
and on my bed now with a pen,
of how to write this thing.
Then suddenly it clicks
just like a lock and key
my heart, it picks
to talk of you and talk of me.
I can remember when we first met, friend,
in the cafeteria that was so loud-
there is that kid I’ve seen around,
you were fiery and proud
yet I will not be afraid, not when your mask is uncrowned.
Now time has passed
I know you well, though you are far away-
separated by circumstance
will it ever be okay?
Perhaps someday soon
I’ll see your face,
one of many in a crowd.
A memory will bloom
and though I make haste,
all will feel quiet despite the loud.
Now, a quick update on the best things that happened to me this fall:
- I got bangs, which is just one step on an exciting hair experimental ride-yeah that’s me, I’m super nerdy.
2. I rescued a kitten, whom my family has named Twinkle Toes (Twinks for short) and she is absolutely precious; especially her big eyes and long whiskers.
3. I started high school, which has actually been pretty good so far!
4. I finally watched Stranger Things, which is absolutely my new favorite TV show.
That’s all I have today, but I’ll part with this lovely little saying I’ve been using:
2017 was a caterpillar, but 2018 is a butterfly. Let’s fly together!
Happy New Year!
