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!
-I wish I could speak every single language, wouldn't that be cool ?

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.

Dimensions #cwccompetition

You try to put me in a box
To find the right category, the right size
There is none for me
Don't you see?

Like putting sneakers on a horse,
Not knowing that
That's not the right type to use
Oh, the importance of the fit of shoes.

I can't just fit in one specific box
I love writing
But I'm an artist, too
How can you say that only one is true?

You can't put me under a label like "hopeless",
Because I'm not, and like sneakers on a horse,
It does not work for me at all,
In it I will trip and fall.

I am many things, for example
I am not just creative, I am also logical.
Oh, the dimensions of personality.
So hard to fit in one category

Umm.. okay, this was an interesting venture. I hope it makes sense.

    I loved this poem! To me, it shows that you are free and that you can't be controlled, and I like that very much. I also like the creative way in which you communicated that message. You have summed up yourself and what you think about personalities. You're right, we can't just be categorised, and I'm very glad that someone has written that we don't have labels.

    It makes sense. It was an interesting direction you took with the prompt. I like the idea of fitting inside the right shoes.
