Hello Everyone 🙂 It`s time for another Writing 101. If you don’t know what this 4 week blogging course is then I suggest that you check out my post here.
I am very behind on these prompts because of school and my massive load of homework that I already have. I will be trying to catch up on these the best I can.
Day 3’s objective is to take a word provided by the wonderful people at Writing 101 and turn it into whatever you want. Out of all the words I have chosen the word “Regret.” I have chosen to write a short poem.
Peering into the music shop window
Once a day
I look at that shiny black guitar sitting in its shiny stand
If only I could afford the beauty
But Wal-Mart doesn’t pay nearly enough
Everyday All I can do is look
Never touch nor question
I`ve asked my parents time and time again
But since I`m 18 they always decline
It has gotten to the point that I`ve gone to Law School
I rarely get a break
One winter morning I came on home
And went straight to the music store
My heart skipped a beat
That beautiful guitar is gone
Oh how I regret not getting some sort of loan or asking for a discount
Now the beautiful guitar is gone
I stumble home and up to my room
My heart has sunk
My shoulders sag
Suddenly my eyes brighten
My shoulders rise
My heart beats happily
On my bed is that guitar
With a note
The note says “You`ve earned it champ! -Dad”
I hug guitar and play a celebration song.
Thanks for reading and Stay tuned for more 😀
