have you ever thought to be the poem?

some people are good with words.
they can make you feel things.
they can make you feel happy.
or sad.
or convinced.
or any number of other emotions.
I, however, don't happen to be that person.

you see, I don't write.
entry level college english was like my worst nightmare.
that's why I chose a business major.
that's why here I post pictures and write in short sentences.
...and choose to nearly always ignore proper grammar.
I'm not always good at expressing myself except in rambling.
and sometimes I'm convinced it makes sense only to me.
so I blog for me more than anything
because if I was convinced to change the world with my writing
i wouldn't attempt.

I've learned a lot recently.
about me.
about life.
about really doing things for yourself
and someday, when i feel like my ramblings suffice, I'll tell you all about it.
until then, I'm just here.
living life and writing down bits and pieces.
I'm glad you read them.
I love you, I'm sure.

If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.  ~David Carradine
