Show Up

I don't feel like
writing today
but here I am,
I show up

I've missed
many days
I feel like
I've failed,
still
I show up

I've learned
that life is
messy,
unexpected,
hard, and
beautiful...
and the only
thing I must
do is this…

I show up.


Sharing an original poem everyday in the month of April.
Happy National Poetry Month!

  1. I called in,
    then cancelled,
    the Sub for today,
    dreading the writing of
    lesson plans of
    lines and stanzas
    and wondering about
    the theme and variation
    of the poem
    I didn't want to have to write
    but did anyway.

  2. I
    got
    over
    writer's block
    by using this form
    it's easy, just count syllables.

    (I'm writing fibs today.)

    I'm glad you showed up.

  3. Showing up, even when it's hard, is half of the battle!
