A Change of Gear

Hey, its been a while. I've written two poems since I last posted. I know that doesn't seem like a lot, but those two poems are packed with enough emotion to be worth at least five of my other poems.  I had a few really rough weeks recently and I used my writing as an outlet for the turmoil I've been experiencing of late.  I'm not going to share my personal problems, but my Uncle had a stroke and I struggled more in school.  The first poem I wrote was a plain free verse titled Terror.  My second poem doesn't have a title because I can't place a finger on which emotion it expresses.

Earlier I mentioned publishing.  I realize that I will not be publishing anytime soon by any means.  That doesn't mean I won't in the future.  i just don't have enough material to actual make a book.  Right now I plan to continue to write poetry, adding on to the number of works I already have; a grand total of 19 so far.  The school year is coming to a close, so I need to focus my attention on the end of the year speech.  From here till I give the speech, this will be main focus in terms of the 20x project.  I've started to brainstorm some possible topics for my talk, but I have nothing concrete yet.  I will let you know as I progress.

Thanks,

Lizzie
