anything or nothing

April 9, 2013

when i was a little girl,
i wanted to be a writer.
so Titi Sara gifted me
my first journal
at the age of six
…and so began my foolish writing.

i penned daily activities
about my first grade friends.
i doodled pictures of clouds
reflecting the day’s weather,
and wrote of how
it always affected my moods.

there are stories too,
about what happened
on any particular day:
a fight with my brother,
an argument with my best friend,
anything and nothing
filled those pages.

my penmanship
was big and bulky.
i chose to write in cursive
as i inked my memories
on those pages.
life was always perfect
so long as i was writing
about anything or nothing.
