April is Poetry Month- Poem 3


The third poem is by Robert Frost called “The Road Not Taken”. I love this poem since I first read it back in high school, which was some years ago. It reminded me when I was a child walking through the woods ( which I won’t do now). Life is always about choices.
(I make no claims on these poems.)

robert_frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

—Robert Frost ( March 26, 1874- January 29, 1963)

April is Poetry Month- Poem 2


The second poem is by Edgar Albert Guest, called “My Creed.” Hope you all enjoy this beautiful poem as much as I did. (I make no claims on these poems.)

To live as gently as I can;
To be, no matter where, a man;
To take what comes of good or ill
And cling to faith and honor still;
To do my best, and let that stand
The record of my brain and hand;
And then, should failure come to me,
Still work and hope for victory.

To have no secret place wherein
I stoop unseen to shame or sin;
To be the same when I’m alone
As when my every deed is known;
To live undaunted, unafraid
Of any step that I have made;
To be without pretense or sham
Exactly what men think I am.

To leave some simple mark behind
To keep my having lived in mind;
If enmity to aught I show,
To be an honest, generous foe,
To play my little part, nor whine
That greater honors are not mine.
This, I believe, is all I need
For my philosophy and creed

—Edgar Albert Guest (August 20, 1881- August 5,1959)

Taking the Writer’s Challenge


Just a few days ago, I’ve decided to take on a 90-day writer’s challenge created by one of my favorite authors, Mary B. Morrison You may know her infamous novels, such as, Soul Mates Dissipate, Darius Jones, and Sweeter than Honey, just to name a few. I have followed her work for a little over ten years now. She has been a big inspiration to me and to others.

Writing has been, and still is, my biggest passion. I live, breathe, and sleep writing. There’s nothing more than to create characters, scenes, and put them together with a plot- you get the drift, and watch them come alive on paper. It’s magical!
So starting July 27, 2015 to 90 days afterwards, I will bring my completed novel, Secrets Unveil to the fore front or begin the sequel. I will write and edit, edit, edit until I can not anymore. I have created a countdown below leading up until I’m to begin the challenge, and then, a countdown till I’m to finish (in 90 days) so you all can see how I’m coming along. I will also posts how I’m progressing. I’m so excited!

I encourage all to follow their dream, whether it’s writing, blogging, a model; go for it! Live your dream and turn it into a reality.

Until we meet again,

Pamela🌹
