Hi, guys! I am going to try to complete #NaNoPoblano again. I thought I’d share my earliest attempts at poetry (yikes!). Please keep in mind, I was younger, still inexperienced in many things, still trying to find my style. So bear with me, please.

I can’t complete the whole month with only poems so I thought I’d just share 10 of my earliest works. I will have a new theme after. Maybe 10 earliest-something again. So I guess, the main theme is “A Few of My Earliest Things”. For now, it’s poems, Anyhoo, I’d like to post this before the day ends. Will add page edits later.

“I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Here is my blanket statement of the day. There are two kinds of people in this world…people who embrace choice and people who don’t. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this differentiation. I know many people who live their lives through the filter of circumstance. Things happen to them. They are firmly locked into the victim mindset, unable to let go of what is now in the past. Life has been unfair to them, and life has made them unhappy. But life is unfair to everyone in one way or another, and this is where choice comes in.
