Agabe Book Anthology

Lately I’ve been working on so many projects that I’ve neglected quite a few things. One being my novel. But now that this process had been put on the back burner for a year, I can really focus on a few other things and polish this story, and get all the information that I would really like to have for this project.

It is a group project where several writers are coming together to write about something we’ve dealt with in the past, mine being my Von Willebrands Disease (bleeding disorder). I had never gotten sick until this point in my life, 2007. So one girl proposed the idea and I absolutely loved it because I had been wanting to do something like this for a bit now, so I started the project and here we are. Three amazing writers with stories already drafted up, one being myself.

My mother is even on board helping with banner creations, and I even got her to pick her writing back up with a poem I shared on the group about my sister. If all goes well our book will contain stories, poems, and random artworks by those in the group, and all proceeds will go to a charity organization that we chose in the end.

Only thing is finding all the links, and a perfect charity in the end. I am glad to be a part of such an awesome process though.

Winter Poem

Winter so beautiful
Winter so awfully cold
Snow blankets the ground
While children play all around

I hate the winter chill
But winter is quite the thrill
I’d rather have the summer heat
But winter simply can’t be beat

Snowballs flying through the air
Children with sleighs everywhere
Snow-angels lay on the ground
Oh winter is all around

It may be cold
I might can’t feel my toes
My fingers may be stiff and numb
But winter you will still always be fun

Family Poem

Family oh how I love thee
You are always there for me
Yes we fight and fuss
But I love you know matter what

We have our times of laughter
Our times to mourn
We always stick together
No matter the storm

Sometimes I am stubborn
And quite hard-headed
But you understand me
Even when I don’t understand myself

Some people can’t say that they have a tight family
Some can’t say their mother is their best friend
Others don’t have the bond we have
I wish that they did

I love my family

Best Friend Poem

Friends come and friends go
It is hard most of us know
But there is always that one friend
That will never part from you

Your best friend
Your true friend
The only one that understands

They’ve been through the good
They’ve seen the bad
They’ve seen the temper tantrums that you’ve had
They’ve been through all the melt-downs
They’ve seen you breakdown

You’re not afraid to be you with them
They’re not afraid to be them around you
You tell each other all your secrets
Nothing is ever hidden

You are more than just a friend
More than just a best friend
You are more like family to me

You’ve been there all along
Even when we didn’t get along
Our friends stood strong
Though we didn’t know it

No matter what reality throws at us
We’ll always figure a way out of it
Because that is what best friends doImage
