A Fire


Hi. Time for a poem. I may or may not be using this blog more often. We’ll see.


 

This feeling that’s fading should fade away fast,

Its only intention is one, aside, to cast;

 

An afterthought aching for the spoils of tomorrow

A tenuous fortnight of time only borrowed;

 

It is easy to split a pair into one,

harder to remain than it is to run;

 

Comradery? That barely scratches the surface

Associates associate, to do things with purpose

 

What we did was something that friends wouldn’t do

So now, in this moment, how can that be true?

 

Perhaps it was fear that split it apart

or a lack of reciprocal views, to start

 

But do not proclaim a lack of a “click”

That argument’s moot; the deception is thick

 

This “friendship” is something that can’t be rekindled

The embers have died, the tinder’s been swindled.

Just one Look at Life…


Wow! I can’t believe how fast the year has gone by already! School is about to start, autumn is just around the corner, the days are getting shorter, it’s cooling down outside… Need I say more? It seems like just yesterday I was making my New Year’s Resolution, frosting Valentines cookies, celebrating my birthday, getting out of school, going to camp, but at the same time, it feels like a lifetime ago. (This is the point when I think to myself, “Dude, it’s only August, so it hasn’t been that long since the  year started.” 😛 ) It amazes me how fast life seems to go. It’s as if one day, you’re going into kindergarten, and the next, you’re taking your ACT, graduating, starting a family. (Not that I’ve experienced the last two in that list, I’m not that old!) Life is like an expensive, really, really tasty candy bar; you have to savor it before it is gone, because you can’t just go out and buy another one. (Man, I’m so philosophical, aren’t I?!) So what I’m trying to say here is, I like to enjoy life and I try to always be optimistic, no matter how grim or boring life seems to be. I would highly suggest that you try to do the same thing. By a show of hands, how many people would rather talk to a really grumpy and grouchy person, than a really cheery, happy person? Hmm… I don’t see any hands so I’m guessing the latter option is the one we would rather have. Am I right, or am I right? So instead of retaliation, how about some love for a change? That’s all for now, folks. 🙂
