Sitting on a flight,

States away from home,

A thought came to me:

“What’s it all for?”


Most days,

We’re on routine:

Work, play, eat, and sleep;

Until our time is all used.


Most times,

Nothing happens;

Day after day,

Until everything changes.


Suddenly, it changes.

New love;

New family;

Or even a new home.


That’s we live for isn’t it?

The thrill of the new

After an eternity.

I forget sometimes.


For me,

Love has done it;

Loss and the gain.

Both have happened.


In a way,

I do have a new home;

Good and bad.

All have been true.


When things look bad,

Just remember this,

All you have to do,

Is get through.

  1. I love how you are able to express yourself through poetry. Everyone needs to find some way to get their thoughts out, whether by telling a good friend everything, writing it out in poetry, stories, songs, or journals, or even just having a good cry sometimes.

    1. For me, all of these things have helped me in the past. Getting back into writing helped me get over a breakup last year and writing in general gives me a coping mechanism for college.
