Hello people! What to say? I'm a Christian girl. I like to write. I write tons of poetry, some short stories, and other things.
God bless you!

Message from Writer

You can be nostalgic for a place you've never been if you've been there in your imagination.

strokes of paint on canvas/those are my words on a page/watch as the ink blots drawn from the depths of my mind/stain papers as they grow yellow with age/wonder if they will live forever/in the imagination and thoughts of someone/for sometimes you'll find if the words are important/blotting them out is not easily done

Thank you to all who have supported me, and feedback is always welcome!
Also, if you comment on a piece of mine, I will generally respond to it at some point.

Stars

April 10, 2019

we always told ourselves
we wanted to be stars
maybe we'd be shooting comets

spectacular-
if only for a moment.

then we'd be remembered
by some
though forgotten
within a couple days

maybe we're part of the 
milky way
our names may fade
with time
but we'll still be there-
a basis for many to come
a legacy left behind

or maybe we'll just
stay suspended in the 
inky fluid
of the night

we will be lanterns
to those 
swallowed by shadows
and shine if only to 
be guides to the 
wayward travelers
of the world
to lead the sailors
home

which will you be?

the shooting star burns bright
but disappears just as fast

those of the milky way
are remembered
forever

will you be
one 
among the ranks?
the legends who 
go down
in history

perhaps you'll be the
constant
the steadfast
are you willing to
live your life for others?


which will you choose?
