Greetings and Salutations

It’s been a long while since I’ve been on here but I hope to get back to being regular again. Today has been a very productive day so far, I’ve finished typing up and writing parts 9, 10 and 11 of The Bloodied Briar and I shall hope to get to editing them soon. You can catch up on the story here.

And I thought I’d share a poem I wrote the other day, I can’t even recall the song that got me thinking and brought on the words but I guess that isn’t the important part. The important part is that I’m getting back into writing my stories and my poems. I’m also dabbling in some RP again, I honestly don’t know if that will last given how much has changed in recent years, it might not be the same as it was, but starting with Jaidee, I’ll be getting my feet wet again.

I shall be around more from now on, I’m hoping to be blogging at least weekly.

But first, shall I give you my poem?

I Was Not Young – A Poem

Poem

I was young when I learned even those who love you can hurt you

I was young when I learned even those you love can want you dead

I was young when I learned those who pretend to be your friend can find pleasure in your suffering

I was young when I learned people can thrive while trying to destroy you

 

I was not young when I learned this was not my fault

I was not young when I learned I was not to blame

The fault was not in me

But in our broken society

 

I was not young when I learned I was still strong

I could thrive

I was alive

The fault was never in me

But in our broken society

 

There is still time to thrive

There is still time to feel alive

There is still time to embrace my destiny

They cannot take that away from me
