Day three of my 100 days of writing. And having thought I’d just be writing fiction, I’ve changed track and written a bit of a poem. It’s a weird one but I like it (I think). Mostly I will be writing fiction in this project though. As always I would love to receive feedback and/or constructive criticism on this or any of my other writing.

Things

Big things.
Small things.
Every thing
In between.

Life, death
Heart, mind.
Always a
Battle inside.

Things that
Are lost.
Things that
You find.

Things you
Need.
Things you
Don’t.

Things you
Love.
Things you
Hate.

But which
Is which?
Who knows?
Not me.
Do you?

Money cures
It all,
They say.
Makes troubles
Go away.

I haven’t
Always
Found
That to
Be true.

Money helps
Get things
Lots of things
But then
I need
More things

Lots of things
That clutter
My house
Until thrown
Away
And then
Replaced.

More things
More clutter
Often wasted
Societies siren call.

Money might
Solve
Problems
But then
It
Causes more.

Because life’s become
About the
THINGS.

Big things
Small things
Every thing
In between

Free things
Expensive things
I didn’t
Want it
But…
Things

Never better things
Can’t live
Without things.

Always forgetting
The important
THINGS

Love
Laughter
Hope
Companionship
Tears
Sorrow
And more

Life.
