In my favorite poem by Robert Frost, Nothing Gold Can Stay, he reminds us that like the seasons of nature, life is one season melting into another, and quickly fading away. This is my attempt to document each season in my life and my family.

In Lieu of the Blog Post I Would Like to Write

There are a lot of things that I want to say that it seems like it would be much wiser for me to keep to myself for now. So, instead, I give you a poem I wrote a few years ago. When I wrote this poem, I had a different person and a different situation in mind. However, I keep thinking of it lately, and so I’ve resurrected it.

Go Ahead

I cannot change
The fact, that
I am not
Someone that
You want to know.
I didn’t ask to be
The object of your
Go ahead and
Blame me
For things I didn’t
Do, But
I can only fit
My feet
Inside of
Empty shoes
