Day 10 - Poem 7 & Why I've Missed the Past Couple Days


Government was never meant
to be this powerful.
Where people had no say
It was a moderator
Not a python trying squeeze
Every penny out

________________________________
So yeah, sorry about missing a few days. I've been sick and my brain has been all discombobulated.

Day 6 - Poem 6

The world is spinning
Round and round
And my feet will never
Touch the ground

I'd rather fall through the sky
Than sit here
Look you in the face
And lie

Because lie doesn't just hurt
You or me

Day 5 - Poem 4

Go to the edge of the world
where dreams come true
Where happiness follows you
And life is crystal clear

No questioning motives
There's nothing to hide
Because no one can lie.

Day 4

You caught me I missed day four. Woops. I truthfully got busy doing not super important stuff before midnight hit and completely forgot until 1 in the morning.

Day 3 - Poem 3

See the world
Go quickly and travel far
You never know 
What the end of the world will be
Unless you travel to the unseen

Day 2 - Poem 2

You are not worth it.
I've used up all my fight
Struggling to find
The words to defend you.
When you won't stand
Beside me.

Rejections - 2 & 3

A few weeks ago I received my second rejections from Storm Cellar, and today I received my third from Sou'wester.
I wasn't really expecting to get acceptances because both journals/magazines are based in the Midwest and that is where they like to find their talent. So I'm not majorly bummed, and like I said in an earlier post, it just means I'm two steps closer to getting an acceptance somewhere. Plus, you never know if they would like anything unless you sent one in so a chance had to be taken. So, here's to two more rejections closer to be published. :)

Love y'all,
Lauryn
