As I look into the sun…

I can’t help but accept what’s done can’t be undone.

I am focused on what has been lost versus what has been won.

I remind myself to be cheery and less glum. Sometimes negativity can get stuck in your mind like gum. The thoughts can become lethal, like a gun. It can string you along like a strum on a guitar.

Be grateful to be alive, wherever you are. You are meant to reach your goals, whether they are near or far. You are meant to shine bright and twinkle like a star. Thank you, sun, for reminding me I have one life. I am committed to living it right. The day has gone, and night has come. Alas, your time of rest has begun.

See you tomorrow, Sun.

Hello, my name is Samantha but, you may call me Sam. For as long as I can remember I have always loved to write. I was known for my short stories when I was a child and was known to have a wild imagination. As I got older, I tucked away my gift of writing and just let time pass. When the pandemic came about, I felt a nudge to use my voice and write again. I started posting poems as a way to help uplift and inspire people going through the pandemic. I was inspired to create a community of healing and to bring people together. I eventually began writing so much that I stumbled upon a poetry club based out of a city near where I live. When I experienced one of their events for the first time, I felt so at home and safe. Currently, I am still a part of that community and was referred to this website by one of the members of the club. She will remain nameless to protect her identity but, she does write for Harness Magazine and spoke very highly of this site. I do consider myself a very private person but, I have been told that my words have a lot of meaning. So here it goes...
