I'm sorry that I've been such a bad blogger lately. It's not really that I've been busy, in fact I haven't had that much going on. I've just been really lazy and have had a lot of school work to do or I've just been really tired. I might be making excuses for not writing, but I've always done that, have I not?
So, in a desperate attempt to make up for my lack of blogging, I will post a poem I wrote that has a lot to do with my current novel/project. In fact, it's written about the same event where my (current) title comes from. So I hope you like it.
A gentle quick lift,
As if effortless. Swing one leg over, And I'm on top of the world.
I laugh, looking down At the grass so far down. You try to hide it, But you're smiling too.
You tell me you'll flip me Backwards off your back. Part of me believes you Really will.
You promise me You won't let me fall, That you'll catch me. You promise.
You swing one leg Back over, And maneuver me somehow So that I'm falling.
I brace myself to Meet the ground. But your arms are around me. You caught me.
That is the best feeling, Pressed in your chest, Smiling at the thought, As your strong arms hold me.
You kept your promise. My eyes water, realizing You loved me enough to Catch Me.
Have a great week, I'll probably be blogging later this week at some point.
Welcome! My name is Hanna and I am currently a freshman in college, just trying to figure out this little big thing we call life. Although it isn't always what we expect, it sure beats the alternative, am I right? I love reading, music, and photography, but my true passion is writing! I've started and stopped a few projects, but I think I'm going to see my current project through. . . Maybe. I'm pretty short and absolutely adore my cat, Buddy. I'm an avid supporter of our troops and veterans and am very dedicated to other causes and charities. My favorite musician is Ryan Simpson, check him out. I love music, all kinds of music - Except bad music. I think that's all you really need to know about me. Feel free to take a look around - although this blog dates back to my 12 year old self (YIKES!) so I'd prefer it if you didn't do that.
