Look To Your Sky | Release the Restraint Wednesday

Hello! This past week, I attempted to write a sonnet for today’s “Release the Restraints Wednesday”. However, I found it really difficult.

“Someone Has it Worse Than You.” | Release the Restraints Wednesday

Hello, (I apologize in advance, this is not a poem. It is however a very important topic that I’m very passionate about.) I spend a lot of time on the computer and whether you attribute that to laziness is up to you, though, you’d be wrong.

Hello, The poem I have for you today isn’t new; I wrote it last fall as an assignment for my Intro to Creative Writing class.
