So You Want To Be A Writer

So you want to be a writer,
But you don’t know where to start,
How to go from making scribbles
To creating works of art.

You have so many stories,
They could fill a hundred books.
But to finish even one
Is much harder than it looks.

So you want to be a writer,
But you don’t know what to do
When a block forms in your mind
And the words just won’t come through.

You sit and stare in silence
At the blank page on your screen.
You’ve discovered it’s a struggle
Just to write a single scene.

So you want to be a writer,
But you’re overwhelmed with fear
That nobody will appreciate
The work you hold so dear.

So you start procrastinating
And you break your writing streak.
Now your writing days are scarce
And your dream is looking bleak.

But to truly be a writer
Takes a dream and so much more.
And you may think you’re alone,
But we’ve all been there before.

We’ve all been through the struggles
And we’ve all endured the pain.
We’ve faced so many rejections
That we’ve nearly gone insane.

But still we keep creating
And we don’t give up the fight,
For the world needs all our stories
To be brought into the light.

So put your pen to paper
And your fingers to the keys.
Always keep the stories coming.
Write as many as you please.

Don’t let anybody tell you
This is not who you should be,
For to truly be creative
Means to set your spirit free.

And the truth is just by writing,
You’ve already come so far.
So you want to be a writer?
My friend, you already are!

The Most Important Man

The most important man
That a girl will ever know
Is the man who gives her everything
To help her learn and grow.

The most important smile
That a girl will ever see
Is of proud encouragement
For the woman she can be.

The most important words
That a girl will ever hear
Are the first to say she’s beautiful,
Intelligent and dear.

The most important lesson
That a girl will ever learn
Is that he’s the only man
To whom she can always turn.

He loves his daughter dearly,
Gives her everything he can.
And I wouldn’t be this woman
If it weren’t for that man.

I don’t know how to thank him
For the things he always did
To give me the greatest life
Ever since I was a kid.

But I know he’ll always be there
To catch me if I fall.
And of all the men I know,
He’s the greatest one of all.

So thanks for being awesome
And for everything you do!
Happy Father’s Day to you, Dad,
From a daughter who loves you!


Happy Father’s Day to my amazing dad! Thank you for all the love and support you’ve given me my whole life! I love you!

I Don’t Know How You Do It

I don’t know how you managed
To put up with me so long,
To endure my moody outbursts
As you taught me right from wrong.

I don’t know how you always
Knew exactly what to say
To help me through my problems
‘Til we made them go away.

I don’t know how you managed
To support me all those years,
To encourage all my dreams
And protect me from my fears.

But I’m thankful that you did it,
For without you there for me,
I could never be the person
That I always hoped to be.

So I thank you for your patience
To stick with me to the end,
And I thank you for your wisdom
As a mentor and a friend.

I thank you for your kindness,
A true blessing from above.
But most of all, I thank you
For your never-ending love.

To be an awesome parent
Is the most challenging task,
Yet you’re still the greatest mother
For whom anyone could ask.

I don’t know how you do it,
But I’m really glad you do.
Happy Mother’s Day to you, Mom!
Love, your daughter who loves you!


Happy Mother’s Day to my awesome mom! Thank you for all the love and support you’ve given me my whole life! I love you!

Follow the Bunny

If you enjoy the sweetest snack,
Be sure to follow every track:
A set of paw prints leading back
Outside into the dawn.

You catch a glimpse of something white
That came to visit in the night
To bring you treats and sweet delight:
A bunny on your lawn!

You look down at the grassy ground
And gaze in wonder all around
At all the chocolate eggs you’ve found
To munch throughout the day.

Now spend the day with ones you love
To celebrate the Lord above!
Enjoy the fun (and chocolate) of
This blessed Easter Sunday!


Happy Easter to all my family, friends, and readers who are celebrating! May you all have a blessed weekend!

Spring Cleaning

When spring is in the air
And the flowers are in bloom,
It’s time to get to cleaning
That messy living room.

Push aside your tables
And turn up every chair.
Vacuum up the carpet
And refresh the dusty air.

Catch those pesky “bunnies”
Hiding underneath your couch.
A sparkling floor is only won
By those who dare to crouch.

Don’t forget the other rooms.
The kitchen needs a scrub.
And you don’t want to put off
Cleaning up that stained bathtub.

The bedrooms need a dusting
And a vacuuming as well,
And tossing out old junk will surely
Help improve the smell.

At last, your cleaning’s finished,
From the garage to the den.
Now you finally can relax…
Until spring rolls round again.
