Im gonna try and stick to this this month but no promises. I’m not the biggest fan of poetry so writing it is a challenge, but hey, that’s how we grow, right? AND this will help me practice for my creative writing class; we are currently in our poetry unit and my poems could use some help. Keep in mind that these are drafts, I’m gonna do my best.
My family is a mess.
Scattered over the country.
From Detroit to NewYork to Georgia to Austin.
All the way down to Mexico.
Salt and Peppers.
Even some baldies.
We speak Spanish and English and Tex-Mex.
We fight and bicker and poke and tease.
And hug and cry and laugh.
We’ve got A principal, an airman, a PA, a librarian,
a nurse, a social worker, a deacon, an engineer,
but most of all-
we have each other.
