NaPoWriMo #26: ‘Retreat’

So I’m really enjoying the woman I’m becoming right now (can’t find a better way to phrase that, sorry). She’s beautiful, confident, and intelligent; she’s surrounded by great people; she has a wonderful present, and a bright future ahead of her. I love being her, and becoming.


Why a picture of fireworks? I’m going to see fireworks with some friends in a few minutes.

Anyways, I wrote this poem about a boy. But after I’d finished writing it, I realized that it could apply to a lot of other people in my life too. I hope you like it!

By Maggie McGinity

I should have stayed backstage
But in the auditorium
I always find a storyum
In which to rhyme and write my life

Are you insane?
And am I going crazy here without you?

I miss you
The light that fills your face
And words spill forth
As easy as breathing
For you
And all the people you meet
Your friendliness and helpfulness
Will not retreat
Stark contrast to my silence sweet.”


“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.” 
-“The Fellowship of the Ring” by J.R.R. Tolkein

“I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.” 
-Jane Austen
