Before I share my poem of the day I have something else to share. DAMSEL DISTRESSED comes out in less than a week, on Oct 14!! And there is a catchy tour/tag going on called Say Yes to Distressed.
So confession time! My distressing/embarrassing moment was that a close friend was changing something in them and I didn't like it. Instead of going to them I went to not another friend but an acquaintance and burst into tears and told them what happened. I shouldn't have done that. In the end it was fine. I confronted my close friend and she forgave me. We are still close, if not closer today.

Now onto OctPoWriMo:
Looking back at the past few days
and not much, no one notices
the effort I'm putting in
I want to stop and see if people still notice
if they don't i might need to change something
if they do then I have something powerful hidden in the midst of all this
I still continue
it's a way to practice for the real thing
it's a way to get an idea for a project
it's a way to release all that's in me
that bad energy I want to get rid of
the good energy I want to share
the inspiring energy I want to give
I want to love.
