Year 2: Day 20 – Where I Was

Charlotte Cuevas Colourcircular stairsA walking stereotype, Charlotte Cuevas is exactly what you’d expect from a children’s librarian and freelance writer- most days you’ll find her bustling about here and there, balancing coffee and a stack of books, fingers stained with ink and pearls jangling. She’s quite serious about poetry, literature, personal growth, and figuring out how to rebuff society’s standards when she’s most content fitting right into them.

The 365 Poetry Project is Charlotte’s attempt to push herself to a greater mastery of the craft, as opposed to her wonderful penchant for writing “whenever I feel like it.” She in no way claims that it was her idea; only that it feels like something she need to do. http://charlottecuevas.wordpress.com

Charlotte Cuevas

I thought I had grown out of circles,
I thought time just passing was proof,
I thought it was time to step out,
I thought I could take it.

But the more I measure time,
the less it matters,
the more I think it proves,
the less it does.

I thought when a punishment is over
that it would be safe to go back,
I thought a sabbatical’s enough
to keep you on track.

But the more I measure time,
the less it matters,
the more I think it proves,
the less it does,

and the more I learn,
the more I know
what I must’ve forgot,
the more I need to go back
to where I was.

Don’t forget to check out my first anthology, Candy Pizza: Poetry that’s Fun and Healthy, available on Amazon & Kindle.
