Just a tad bit of poetry…

Life is always
In progress
Never done
Never truly finished
Always something more to do
Waiting for something to happen
Never done
My work is ongoing
And I will never reach the end
I am buried in all this never ending work
It only grows
It will cover me up
Until I no longer see the light of truth
And I will be buried in my own sweat
My own tears
My own blood
Buried by my own hand

When life gets too difficult
I retreat inside myself
For that sweet mental escape
But it never comes
The demons from outside are inside my head
I let them come
I cannot make them leave
I am powerless
I cannot overcome this
My demons exist inside and out
And I just
Let go of them
We have been friends for too long

Hey guys! These are just a couple of poems I wrote. I just wrote one of these a couple of minutes ago, and I wrote the other about a week ago. I really love writing poetry, and I definitely don’t do it often enough. It always seems to be unhappy and dark though, haha! Anyhoo, I’ve been feeling super swamped with school and a couple of book release dates (I missed all three, it was the seventh), and I ran out of scheduled posts. I may be going into a bit of a reading/blogging slump, so I’m going back to basics! I will probably disappear for a few days on here (I’m going on a church trip this weekend and I’m super excited but I leave right after school tomorrow), but after I get back and my MAIN deadline for school (tomorrow) is done with, I think I will relax quite a bit. I just need to read something that really gets me excited, take some pretty bookstagram pictures (I’m participating in #COYERphoto, hint hint check out my Instagram in the sidebar!), bake, drink tea, play the piano (I haven’t in a while, I guess I’m just itching to haha), rearrange my bookshelves, and write poetry. Wow, that’s a long list. I just need to relax and do the things I really love. I’ve just had a couple “what am I doing with my life what is the point of everything I hate it all” moments in the past couple of days, and I need to remind myself.

Okay, that was a long paragraph! Long story short, I hope you enjoyed my little bit of poetry and I hope to see you all soon with another blog post! If any of you have any other tips for not falling into this trap of a reading/blogging slump, do let me know down in the comments! 🙂

P.S. This is my 200th post! Woot woot! How cool is that?!?

Lots of Love, Amy ❤

When I sit down to write a poem
I think it might be happy
But then my inner demons take over
And I write about pain
I may seem happy
But do not believe that
For inside I have a million scars
Just because mine don’t show
Doesn’t mean they aren’t there
