I’m Going to Miss This

In his hit song, “You're Gonna Miss This,” Trace Adkins sings to a young woman who appears to be rushing through each stage of life. Barely a newlywed, she already has a plan mapped out for her and her husband to buy their first home. To this, Adkins advises her to slow down, as she … Continue reading I’m Going to Miss This

When Paper Is So Much More

Pingback: https://poetscornerblog.wordpress.com/2017/06/22/paper-promises/ Paper is defined as: a material manufactured in thin sheets from the pulp of wood or other fibrous substances, used for writing, drawing, or printing on, or as wrapping material.

My Legacy

I've recently devoured the first season of Amazon's new series, " Z: The Beginning of Everything." I finished the season in one day ,(okay, I admit it, I spent the day bingeing), and was inspired to order the book, authored by Therese Anne Fowler, that the series is based on. Watching the show's portrayal of Zelda … Continue reading My Legacy

Immediately paralyzed with both … Continue reading Comfort in Solitude

Escaping My Mind

  The bewitching hour is upon us and as I watch everybody peacefully and silently sleep, peace, silence, and sleep elude me. Held captive by my ever racing thoughts, my brain won't allow my body to simply shut down. Physically exhausted, my mind pushes through and the two AM torment continues. If only this were a … Continue reading Escaping My Mind

Who Taught Me

When asked who my favorite teacher was I have a very difficult time answering this question. I like to consider myself a student of life, and so I believe I'm always learning from somebody. Alas, someone has to be a favorite though, and whether we like it or not, we all have favorites; for better … Continue reading Who Taught Me
