“I’ll Have Another” is a series of writings using a type of poetic form. I’m not sure it ascribes to any particular poetic formula, but they definetly have a rythym to them.
“I’ll Have Another” is basically meant to be my thoughts on life. Sometimes good, sometimes not, but either way “I’ll have another”. Another day. Another moment. Another sunrise. Another whatever. To me, life is a series of events that move us towards God. We can take these events and learn, or not. Move forward or try our hardest to stay the same. But the ketch is with ever moment we are changing, moving; in one direction or another, weather we choose to move or not.
I hope you enjoy these. I will be adding to these, over time, because with new experiences come new words to tell. I will simple call this one “I’ll Have Another: Part 1” and continue on with “part 2”, and so on, as the words come.
I’ll Have Another: Part 1
Waking to uncertainty
Walking in hopes that I’m going the right way.
Brushing my teeth in habit
Memorizing the shade of color under my already tired eyes
I’ll call this shade “purple mornings”
In front of the mirror
Practicing my cheap smiles that I can afford to give strangers
We are in a recession, ya know.
It’s a good one
My baby laughed and said “Da” and it coursed through my veins
The best things are free
She’s pretty in any weather
Especially cloudless nights, all shooting stars and soft glows
I think I could get lost, and wouldn’t mind it.
I’ve lost count
It’s not right to have to lose more times than you win. Is it?
The rode less traveled
That poem just made me feel lonely, I don’t want to walk alone.
Alone is never good no matter the destination
I take hope in its light
God I’m thankful for the mornings
To be brave
Or maybe the brave thing would be, to not have another
I really want to be brave
To chase its brothers
Tears are like potato chips, you can never have just one
Is it true you collect them?
Like sunsets, they happen
Sometimes their beautiful and just a little sad
Others just leave a hole.
I’ll have another
