Summer breeze sure does make me feel fine. On a scale from one to ten, my satisfaction is usually a nine. It’s warm and sometimes sticky but I prefer this than the contrast. Less clothes, icy drinks and romances that often never last. I still feel like an overjoyed kid that’s just on a break from school. A feeling of freedom and reckless abandon, a flimsy excuse to break a few rules. Out late and drinking early. Work is merely a way to keep out of trouble. Every night it’s cocktails and cute faces, while my social life continues to double. In the beginning, it feels like the season will last forever. Sandals and tons of extra sun block to lend. Then in August the sales start on backpacks and books; the realization that the fun is almost at an end. I visit the beach, to enjoy the last bit of summer breeze; not excited for the cooler days ahead. Within several months when this season restarts, my satisfaction and summer will once again wed.
As i previously mentioned, my blog is geared more towards the mature young adult crowd so that would be the main group of persons to whom I would like to exhibit my blog. However, I am certainly not prejudice towards any other age groups. Come one, come all 😊 lol.
To those of you who have already been exploring my posts, you will know that poetry is nothing new to my site. However, I’ve never added any visuals to my poems so i think i’ll nake that my ‘new’ element. Please see a VERY brief poem below.
I sleep with my eyes open, dreaming of what’s out there.
Hoping for a day I can do what I truly want without a care.
If it were up to me I’d quit my job and focus on being the female Hemmingway of modern times,
Though some of my peers can only commit to makeup tutorials and Instagram modelling online 😒.
I’ll admit that I have a lot of hobbies: cooking, writing, sketching, photography just to name a few.
In my head I’m a master of them all and I’ll keep doing what I love. Dream on, dream until your dreams come true.
(Btw, the pic is not edited, just my real life view 😁).
Randomly going through my old high school files, I discovered a detailed report of my SAT scores. Not only was it my scores, but I discovered a copy of my original essay I wrote in the ‘Writing’ portion of the exam. It was scanned in my original handwriting and I was simply shocked that I never realized I had this. Of course being curious about the writing skills of my younger self, I decided to have a read. Almost ten years later, my mind set is almost exactly the same; of course I’m a bit more refined now lol. I’ve decided to use the topic from my SAT essay to write a quick poem.
It is better to change one’s attitude than change one’s circumstances:
You can’t determine the hand you will be dealt or see you future in a crystal ball,
Sometimes life comes at you so fast, there’s no time for preparation at all.
Certain people are born into crummy situations while other people encounter these challenges over time,
It doesn’t matter how these changes affect your social status or finances but more so mentally, how it affects your mind.
God helps those who helps themselves so it’s important to at least try to do your best and stay hyped,
But when your best doesn’t work, smile through the tears, your blessing is on its way down the pipe.
