It is not easy to have a full day that is focused on everything but poetry and then to vice out the time at the end of the day to be creative. However, a commitment is a commitment and I will do what I don’t feel like doing, like I don’t think I can do, what my mind is too tired to do, in order to fulfill my commitment to this 30 Poems in 30 Days Challenge. Sometimes its in these moments that the great things happen. That is the reward. Sometimes it isn’t, but that’s not to say it is a failure. I see the poetry on days like these just as much a success because it is the discipline that holds up the pillars to the house where poetry can live and I just posted one more pillar. The behind-the-scenes of the struggle and the mishaps; the trials the errors are the moments to embrace with pride, without them, no greatness will ever be realized.
