I vow that after I leave this month behind,
there will be no more stretches of blank blogs
or empty poetry folders. What will make
the difference this time? I don’t know, but if
I don’t set my goals, no one else will care
whether I write or not.
At times I fear I’ll lose the desire to write,
I won’t see poems when I’m driving or when I
Have dinner with friends or family, especially
family, they are such good fodder for my lines.
Passion about anything is such a gift and I want
to honor that gift with hard work and pride in
what I do, even if it is only because I wrote
a poem today.
