This past week, I attempted to write a sonnet for today’s “Release the Restraints Wednesday”. However, I found it really difficult. I couldn’t get into a rhyming rhythm and didn’t want to deal with iambic pentameter. Mostly though, whenever I think of sonnets I think of love. I feel like all I do is write love or heartbreak poems and I desperately needed a break from that.
I think it’s really important that people focus on making sure they’re happy before they look towards others. Depending on others is a slippery slope that, I think, is best avoided. This week, I wrote a poem about looking out for yourself and your dreams called, “Look to Your Sky.” Here it is, I hope you enjoy it.
Look to your sky, find your star grab at it stretch out your hand, strain your fingers and pull yourself up. Look to your sky, find your sun feel it against your skin, allow the warmth to radiate off of you and pull yourself up.
