So yes, I wrote this poem at 10:30 PM on December 31st, 2008. I had to. This poem completes my challenge of writing a poem a week, which I completed yay!!!!!!!!!!!! And I hope shows how my poems have grown through the year.
One of my goals this new year was to write 52 poems in the year. Not one a week, but four a month. So that way if I'm very much not inspired one week I'll just write two the next week, which will be much easier. So I'll keep posting on this blog. Another thing I want to do is print out all the readable poems I wrote this year (most of them) and make them into a book! Who knows if that will happen or not...
Happy New Years everyone!!!!! I hope you have a great year!!!!!
A year is whirling
through your head
rustles through the empty trees.
Lift your head to the sky
as life pounds down around you...
An hour left to go
can you keep all the memories
Will the wind
whisk them away
and leave you cold,
to face a new year?
Will you put it all behind you--
will you put a smile on your face--
and watch a new year rise?
