Just dropping in

TOTALLY STOLE THIS FROM MY LITTLE SISTERS BLOG, she wrote it; I like it though, mostly the way she wrote it out. I thought it was pretty cool. 

I've kind of had a rough couple of weeks too, and usually when I blog I somehow manage to inspire myself so I thought now was the time! 

I see nothing.
Or else I see everything empty.
Empty Roads.         Empty Houses.        Bare Trees.       Airless Balloons.        Peopleless Churches.
Sad looking really. 

I walk alone on this Avenue of Shattered Hopes, there are abandoned cars that line the streets where smiling faces used to fill the air, now there is no one smiling,
                                                                             no one hugging,
                                                                                        no one kissing,
                                                                                                        just empty streets.
Empty fields.          Empty barns.           Empty faces of people I've never seen.     Children looking to the skies.

They see birds.

Hundreds of them.

Thousands of them.

They're flying away.    I wish I could fly away too,
                                                         To somewhere new.

Where people love, and care for each other, and share their time with one another, as families, and as friends.  Where we join hands as a people.  We stand as ONE.  Where smiles are shown, and emotions are shared, and feelings mean something.  But NO.

I see sad faces
                      Jukeboxes. . . . . No longer playing.                             PUNCHED WALLS.
          and Smashed guitars.               and emptiness.

THEN.... something we all know, Taylor Swift is a genius. I seriously admire that she has the guts to say what the rest of us pretend we don't think. Everything she writes, we can all relate to. It's amazing. So I decided to post some of her lyrics, quotes, etc.. that I found. 


AND, I know I said this before, but I actually have been practicing the guitar again. I have a goal to spend at least 20 minutes on it each day. I am slow, that's my biggest problem. I have a hard time switching from note to note. I will get it though, when I tell myself I'm gonna practice for an hour, I get overwhelmed, so I am going for a much more reasonable goal ha. Once I start to get okay at it though, it will all be downhill. I like to be the best ha, right now I'm just stuck on the frustrating part. Plus I love singing to it! I know one song and I love to sing it over and over again. It's finally getting exciting! 

I will blog more again I promise. Things are all coming back together now! I know I've said that before, but really this time. They all sort of fell apart for a while!
