Hello hello again and welcome back!
A few days ago I came across a poem. It was a poem one of my followers had written and it was REALLY good! I was actually shocked. It was so beautiful. Me being me, of course, I got the idea in my head that I needed to take a shot at it too because, why not?!
I was sitting at the beach the other day staring into the water and started to really think about how the ocean makes me feel. I got in touch with my emotions and wrote every detail down, and what do ya know?! I ended up writing my first poem! I am pretty pleased with it. I've debated sharing it at all because there are always going to be negative comments and people trying to bring you down, but I am deciding now that I really don't care what anyone thinks. As Manny would say, "If you don't like it don't f*cking watch it!" Same applies here if you don't like it don't continue reading… There is no RIGHT way to write a poem.
Here's my first take on poetry…
The ocean is deep
It sometimes makes me feel weak
When I stand with my feet in the sand
I could sink
Let it all flow away
In the ocean waves
That ease my pain and make me crave
What I can not see
But I know that I need to stand and be brave
For there are so many waves left to take
I breathe in the ocean
And feel whole again
With the sun in my face
Ready to conquer what comes next
In this crazy game,
we call life
Don't be afraid to try new things and put your creative self out into the world! You never know who you could inspire…
Welcome, welcome! My name is Stephanie Denny and this is a blog about my life. I’m 22 years old and I have SO much to say! I feel like my life is a constant roller coaster of highs and lows. I’m sometimes so lost that it feels like there is no way out and at other times, I feel as if I’m on top of the world. I struggle with what career path I will choose, what I look like from other peoples’ perspectives, making my family and friends proud, my weight and body image, listening to my heart, and much much more on a daily basis. Sure, I’m 22 and I should be out enjoying myself with friends, getting drunk, and dancing the night away (which I do) but after those nights I seem to feel more confused and more off balance than before. We are in the hardest and most complicated stages of our lives. We have choices laid out in front of us every day. Should I take the dream job or travel? Should I pursue what I love or go to school and get a degree because it seems like the right thing to do? Should I stay home or move away? I’ve been realizing lately that there is no right way. No one can tell you how to live your life and no one can tell you what path to take. I’m trying this new thing… I’m going to do whatever the hell makes ME happy. It’s a work in progress, well, I’m a work in progress, but happiness is key and I’m learning this every day. So… If you’re 22 or 20 something and can relate to any of this confusion, stay tuned because this is for you!
