And just for thought...
The first day in October as the world starts to settle down from another passing year,
wrapping up this, forgetting that... what was that resolution?
Doomed to repeat what we promised to do last year, knowing perfectly well we will all go to our resting place still smoking with the 20 extra pounds we could never shed.
This drizzle blankets quiet all over this town,
making me wonder why do drops make us so docile?
What is in the sun's fire that sparks us so?
Even in these words, I feel a certain calmness,
one that a clear sky never offers.
What I have done this year?
And, yet, my dreams I chase still run wild like the first butterfly in Spring.
It's Fall everywhere, soon to be Winter, and hibernation will set in, craving the warmth of Summer.
Umbrellas bounce around in that great sea of gravel lying before me,
making me smile at the artificial rainbow that they form.
Months fly by and its October, holidays waiting to send us all in a tizzy of turkey and tinsel.
Are we prepared this year to leave some bad habit behind?
Or will we yet again meet next year with the same vices we swore we would give up...
Well, maybe next year then.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
