Happy Saba Day!

Hello tomodachi’s

How is everyone doing? If you can tell by the title of this post today is Saba Day and it is one of the few reasons to celebrate today. And my way of celebrating my island’s day is doing what I do best and that is, of course, writing poetry.

Look up

Hello Tomodachi’s,

How are you this fine Friday afternoon? I think I may be getting another cold going by my runny nose, slightly irritated throat and constant sneezing. I did not get over my last cold barely even a week ago. How disappointing that I may end up getting it again…

Anyway, as I wrote on my last blog post on Monday, I had my spoken word performance on Wednesday evening. It seems to have gone pretty well when I think back on the crowd’s reaction to my performance. If you are interested in watching the live videos I had posted you can always go to my Angie’s Inspiration page on Facebook and check them out. I intend to make a mini video of my day leading up to the event and parts of the event itself if I get the chance to do so.

I may not be some genius poet of the sort but I try my best in all that I do. I look up despite my failures, nervousness and being (considered) not good enough. I refuse to remain staring down at my feet because of my insecurities. For how will I know what may or may not lie ahead if I am always staring down?

Anyway, the poem below expresses exactly how I feel and in just a few words. I hope you enjoy it and I will see you all next time. Take care and have a great day everyone!
