Hey fellow bloggers I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate each and every one of you that has taken time to read my blogs. I started writing around two years ago. Sometimes I write great content and other times it’s just okay. Some of my friends ask me why I write if only a few people are going to read it. Continue reading “Are you curious? Read on.”
Dear Aunt aka Tia Toya
Today is your birthday just one day before mine. I wish I could call you on the landline. You departed this life to live up above. But a day doesn’t pass without me feeling your love.
You were my Tia and also my friend. You thought I was silly and sometimes a bit insane. But it didn’t matter cause you loved me just the same.
You were at times quiet but always thinking. You were selfless in loving despite the tears you were blinking.
You sometimes scolded others but for their own good. In certain aspects you were misunderstood.
You were my mother’s sister and confidant. At the parties you were the most radiant.
I really miss calling you today. But I heard your voice when I put my hands together to pray.
Happy birthday Tia. I Love you.
Your niece Guadalupe Macias
Among the silence I miss your voice and in the midst of all the noises I miss your quietude. Thank you.
Love Guady G
Do you get it? Sometimes as writers we pour our hearts and soul into our writing and get no likes. Then other times we just write for the heck of it and everyone loves it. Does it make you wonder? Do you ponder about it?
We check stats and there are readers everyday of our material. So the question remains. Do we write because we are passionate about it or simply to be liked? Do we have a message we want to convey? Is it a popularity contest? Who are we competing against? Hmm just more questions. Anyone have any answers? Why do you write? I’m interested.
I write because when I was 9 years old I discovered that I could put my feelings in a poem. It was cathartic. I loved rhyming and it was fun too. How old were you?

Given the chance to see you again I wouldn’t have words to say. All this that I feel……………
You left without explanation. You took away my bliss and my sensation. You broke your promise of honesty. Oh, what a travesty!
But if you were right before me I would just ………………..
But should I?
