The blood pumping
through my veins
or the thoughts
that can’t escape my brain.
-What is it
that makes me believe
that the world around me
isn’t all that it seems?

I look beyond
what’s plain to see
and open my eyes
to what could be.

So many others
hold their eyes closed
and to what I know,
they’ll never be exposed.

Keeping their vision
planted too firmly in reality
restrains their growth
and erases their morality.

For all they see
is all the cruelty,
what’s real, set in concrete-
instead of all the possibilities.

Attention Bloggers!

I feel too many bloggers avoid interacting with the most important part of blogging – Their followers, likers, and commenters! People who actually take time out of their busy days to read our thoughts, opinions, and random strings of words. It’s so amazing to me that I have over 200 followers and I’m so very thankful for each and every person who has read my posts!! It’s awesome to have this support from people who have some background in writing and blogging and others out there like me, who are just trying to figure out what they’re doing with their lives and with their words.

I really want to connect with you and get to know more about everyone. Also, I would like to promote anyone who wants to participate. I know how hard it is to get noticed in this world of bloggers and I would like to give you somewhat of a podium to let your voice be heard.

So, if anyone would like to do this, write a short story, a poem, or anything you like to tell me and everyone else something about yourself, your writing, or why you decided to become a blogger.

You can either write it in the comments below or you can post about it on your personal blog and I will reblog it to my site. Just be sure to comment a link to your post so that I will see it.

I can’t wait to read more about everyone!
