Commitment – A Reminder Poem To Myself

A poem now that came to me rather suddenly and with a clear message to myself (and perhaps other writers facing the same issues as well): read more and write more! While the latter is going, fairly well (though it’s still in need of progress), the former I’m especially guilty of not following lately. It’s odd. I love doing both. They should come quite naturally, right? Well, for some reason they don’t. Not as much as I’d hoped, anyway, and I sometimes fear what it might do to this passion I’ve held for so long as well as to myself. And so I came to to write this poem, addressed to myself and anyone else it might concern.


Commitment
Oh yes, I read and also write
But some would say that I just might
Be trying to do just a bit
More in my might so I’ll commit
To truly do the things I love
I almost used to do above
All else, before it’s pushed away
And sucked out of each single day

They are correct, I am afraid
My literary path will fade
If I don’t walk it with more fire
Then committed to the pyre
Is this passion I so cherish
And I can’t allow to perish
To a dragging curtain fall
I’ll see it once more will enthrall

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
