Message from Writer

¡Hola a todos! My name is Emi and I love writing.

"I choose joy!"

Don't ever tell yourself you're worth nothing. That's a lie straight from the Devil. No matter what you've done, what you've seen, who you've been with, you are PRICELESS. You are amazing, and if you don't feel like anyone sees that, trust me, at least two people do. Me and God. Love you all!

Journey's End

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

8
"In western lands beneath the Sun
The flowers may rise in Spring,
The trees may bud, the waters run,
The merry finches sing.
Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night,
And swaying branches bear
The Elven-stars as jewels white
Amid their branching hair.
Though here at journey's end I lie
In darkness buried deep,
Beyond all towers strong and high,
Beyond all mountains steep,
Above all shadows rides the Sun
And Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
Nor bid the Stars farewell."

The poem I would keep forever in my pocket is J.R.R. Tolkien's "Journey's End." I adore Tolkien's work, and I would love to read this poetic, musical poem every day. It is full of nostalgia, of lost adventure and quests and beautiful lands long destroyed. It transports me to a fantasy realm where there is still beauty and good and nature and love, though it is bittersweet too. That is why I love this poem.

    Oh, this is a great choice! I love it!
    Replying: Yeah, seeing it kinda makes you feel terrible and blessed at the same time, and I’m glad I was able to convey that feeling in writing. There’s so many more stories I could’ve added, but those I thought were the best. I’m glad you liked it! Your comments are always so nice and thoughtful. (And thought provoking :)
