Pursuing Poetry Goals
The Midweek Muse
A little inspiration to get you over the hump!
Today we are talking about "settling." Sometimes we have dreams and aspirations that didn't quite work out so we settle for less than what we had hoped for. Sometimes this settling is realistic or a satisfying compromise. But sometimes settling leads to depression because we didn't go for the things in life we really wanted.
I wrote a poem long ago about all those things I really wanted to do...but kept putting them off. I am actually grabbing hold of one of those "maybe someday" dreams right now by pursuing my love for writing. For some aspirations, it is not too late.
put all the maybes, and soons, and we will sees
and put them in a ziplock bag for me
the half gallon size should do
place the bag in the crisper
keep it fresh and away
open up the fridge
and know they are in there
to be mixed into the souffle
of half baked proportions
and sunken dreams
So what about you? Are there any areas in your life where you feel you have "settled" for less than you desire or deserve? Here is your chance to tell your story or express your feelings in a poem, an image, or even song lyrics.
Note: Always cite sources for quotes, poetry, etc which you did not create yourself.
