Bring in the Bell Rings for 2017!

Clocks don’t stop ticking away.
World won’t stop turning around.
Grow and love every day.
Let’s make every second count.

Goodbye to the past held so dear.
Goodbye to the yesterday that has been.
It is time to say Happy New Year!
O we are blessed to welcome 2017!

With Love, Jessie

A Requiem for the Artists

They love us for our art;
But only our success do they see.
To them we shine like stars;
Because we make them believe.

But the years below the surface;
When we hung on for dear life;
When dreams ruthlessly shattered;
Everyday was a torturous fight.

Why do we hold on?
Why do we not give up?
Why do we not listen to Dad and Mom?
Why do we not grow up?

Because we must piece together the shattered vase…
Because our dreams must not die…
Therefore our pride, we throw away…
Because we refuse to be dead inside…

– For all the Artists out there fighting for their dreams everyday

This poem was inspired by “La La Land” directed by Damien Chazelle. What a beautiful film, and something that all actors, and artists could relate to. I wish to continue to have the courage to be in my chosen field of work, no matter how hard it gets.
