My original goal with this blog was to post like crazy, poetry I had written so that I get myself into the habit of writing all of the time. And considering it is National Poetry Month (April), I feel ashamed and sad that I have not had the chance to keep up with my goal because I let work get me bogged down and it often pulls me away from my true calling. Somewhere, something has to change.
In the mean time, here is a poem I wrote back in 2006. Clearly, I’m still dealing with the same issues of finding time to write consistently. However, somehow, I sense that will all change sooner than I think.
my calling (haiku, written on 4/7/06)
i am a writer
even when i don’t feel right
can’t go against God
