[Poetry] Eternal

Isn’t it crazy how something as simple
As a pen and ink and paper and words
Can turn reality upside down
And make the silence be heard?

Isn’t it crazy how something as finite
As words and paper and ink and a pen
Can immortalize most anything
And make it last until the end?

Triple prompt combo for OctPoWriMo: Day 29 – Upside Down // Day 30 – Simplicity // Day 31 – Eternal

I did it! My always-tardy self finished OctPoWriMo on time! I can’t believe it! I never finish  things on time!

It’s been a fun month, and I want to give a special shoutout to my friend Melinda who introduced OctPoWriMo to me in the first place. Alright everyone, onwards to November.

        1. One day at a time is a great plan, I think. That’s usually how I try to take things as well. And I completely understand. Please don’t feel like there’s any pressure to participate in Monday Morning Melts. Feel free to do what you can! ^_^ I’m also excited to read all the submissions!
