Tis a bit out of character for me to boast about anything until I considered ‘why
not’ ~ people do it every day on social media via uploading photos and videos of
their ‘happiest’ moments.
Few people know much about me. There are personal reasons I keep my life
private. The penned poetry I post is done in a manner for the reader to think,
guess and form ‘their’ own opinion.
On a whim toward the end of April (Poetry month) I placed an entry into a
Poetry contest held at my local library.
The first surprise for me was seeing my poem linked in on various websites.
A few weeks later I received a beautiful card with the monetary gift certificate
and words of congratulations.
I consider this a turning point (an honor) within the writing -poetry community.
It fueled my desire to go forth in hopes to attain the last goal I’d set for myself.
With the assistance of an already published author I met during my tenure on
WP I now have knowledge of what it takes to get a book published.
1. It sometimes pays to take a chance; you’ll never win if you fail to try.
2. It’s okay to ask for help rather than try to DIY. Some individuals are
wonderful humans = NICE.
Today’s word prompt: looking
The past few days I’ve been looking for opportunities to supplement
I was flabbergasted when I read about the success of a 19-year-old
who currently is earning big bucks from a crafts business she started
little over a year ago.
Yes, twas hard for me to comprehend since during my tenure of life
I’d dabbled in the same Hobbie.
Bravo to the young lady from the UK!!
Me? I shall continue looking and conduct research in hopes of a
last chance at success.
Tired life’s obstacles
Constants ne’er reach goals

Weekend decision sign on trial ‘n error game Roblox
Today’s words: heart – poison – care
Heart shattered piece

Misfits never interlock
Memories fresh no-win though care
Miss dozen roses – box chocolates
Hope and pray newfound Valentine next year
