Day 12: 30 Poems, 30 Days

I really should be writing this quite a bit earlier in the day

I really should be exercising more
                                      losing more weight
                                         eating right-er
                                            getting more sleep

                                                       and just plain being healthier

I really should be praying more
                                             reading the Bible more
                                     memorizing more passages
                              getting to church more often

I really should be spending more time with my children
                                            more time thinking about how to love my wife better
                                               washing the dishes, right now
                                                    or taking out the trash

I really should be watching less television
                          playing fewer games
          reading more books
                   writing novels and volumes of poetry

I really should be

I really should be making fewer lists.

  1. Hi Matthew! I am so enjoying reading these. I remember how you loved to write. Glad you still are… me too. What a fun idea… very creative! I’ve been writing/playing around over at http://dversepoets.com/ You might want to take a look, see what you think… if you haven’t already been there. They provide several different prompts throughout the week. A little something for everyone… and very encouraging. Give your lovely wife a hug from me!

  2. Hi, Pat! Great to hear from you! I’ll take a look at that website; it sounds fun. Glad to hear that you’re still writing, too. I’ll be happy to give Aimee a hug from you.
