The Inspired Heart

Your Spirit Stays with Me

My professor has been telling my class to write thoughts about things that happened in our life and share it with our writing class. The only requirements are that we have to have a quote that goes with the experience and it has to be “film-able”. Since the anniversary of my grandmother’s death is coming in a week, I thought I would write about her. Continue reading “Your Spirit Stays with Me”

Are You “The One”?

I hate Valentine’s day.

Yes, I said what almost every single girl says on this day, but not for the reason you’re probably thinking. I hate Valentine’s day because it focuses on the relationship rather than your relationships. Continue reading “Are You “The One”?”

Addictions… why?

I actually thought of this poem while in one of my college classes. This guy was talking about his love of smoking and I thought about how many people try to run away from their problems by getting addicted to things that will only hurt them in the long run. How many of us run to addictions to “save” us from our problems but then find out it really does nothing, it only takes away the pain temporarily? We have all had our share of addictions, we need to learn that these addictions will only be a temporary joy. Take some time and think about how your addiction could lead to disaster and try your hardest to get away from it.

What is it with addictions?
Addiction to drugs, nicotine, liquor,
Life
Can be difficult, confusing, a struggle,
A joy
But, you choose to caress death;
Your beloved blanket
Tightly
As if to say, “thank you,
thank you for warming my heart”
Embracing
The moment where it took
Not only your heart but also
Your mind
Changing what you once controlled,
Your past desires,
Into death.

The Kickoff

So, I’m starting a blog… What do I write to begin this journey? Well, I’ll start with a poem that I literally just made up a few seconds ago. Scary thought. PLUS: It can only get better from here! 😀

WRITE

your heart urges for a drum to beat on

change a life with your rhythm

cuff your hand around an ear

enhance the sounds of the world

snatch the memory of music

take control of life

the only thing that starts the journey

is letting the prisoner out inside
