Starting Fresh

Time for a new semester to begin... and for me to buy over 20 books : / Oh well, if I like them, I'll post on them. I am very much looking forward to reading Henry David Thoreau's "Walden" all the way through for once : ). It's going to be a rather busy semester though. I'm sorry I haven't gotten up the "Shadowland" review yet. I'm halfway through and hope to finish it by the end of next week, if not I suck... Anyway for now I'll leave you with a poem from yours truly and hope that you can all forgive me. Good luck to the rest of you beginning new semesters as well!!

Without beauty,
I am nothing
The world will never--
Value my mind.

Rude glances come my way,
From strangers on the street
Those I love--
Ignore my thoughts.

I am nothing,
For today I am not beautiful
What will I do--
When my curse leaves me forever?

I'll try to add some more recent work after getting the "Shadowland" review up finally.


  1. Sounds as if you are relating beauty as to what is on the outside, not on the inside?

  2. Yes, I like to sometimes think of outside beauty as a curse... Although it has its ups and downs I suppose. It's a question I ask myself often and just had to write about.
