POEMS COURTESY OF BLOSSOM
Today, I watched a volcano and lighting lit up in my head.
Unable to describe which exactly, is how I’m feeling but I’ve been told to channel no matter how much It hurts or how much I hoped it would have been better.
So this is me channeling.
I’m thinking of endless victories and possibilities that would come from the things nobody believed I could birth.
I’m thinking, this time I want to give my best to everything, even if I’m the best which isn’t really the goal. The goal is to become better every time at any given thing small or big.
Giving it your best and not settling for the last victory but striving for a better best than I can give.
I’m thinking if I could give my best and not settle, if you could give your best and not settle, what would it be? Where would we be? What would you be?
