If you have been a reader for a while, then you may know that I have a “30 before 30” list. This list includes me writing a poem for the blog and a friend even posted one of their own to get me started. I am finally delivering on this.
Drowning in a sea, unable to breathe
I reach out, grasping for something of substance to hold on to
All I feel is the cold water around me, slowly pushing me under
The more I reach, the deeper I go
A ray of light beacons from above and I can see.
The waters around me are cold, cowardly, and made of flesh.
Waves of negativity
“You won’t” they taunt.
I kick off of the bottom, and like a dolphin, soar out of the water, higher than the heads of those keeping me under.
No longer held by their cold, uncaring hands, I am free.
I can and I will.
I always say that I am not a writer and I stand by this. I think blogging (how I do) and writing is completely different. My blogs are just spews of thoughts; writing has more effort into it. With that said, I do write sometimes, but I keep it to myself. I have wanted to share some of my writings, but I always feel they are so personal and it ends at that. With a little motivation from others, I was finally able to write something that I wanted to share publicly. I hope you guys like it.
Do you write poems or short stories?
Are you a writer?
