Journal

Every November it happens. I see diaries on display. The lightbulb moment, I'm inspired! I must keep a journal every day. Every January starts off well. In keeping a promise to myself, I faithfully pen the goings on each day. It's apparently good for your health. February is often quite patchy. Many a day goes a miss! I start to question why, each annum, I spend to fail at this... One day runs into another. It's mid September now! It feels like only in a blink Six months have passed - holy cow! I start to reason on why it bothers me That I can't look back on what's gone on. It's about now I say, " If I get another I'll keep my own promise to write on! " I suppose it could be apathy. " I can't be bothered " type of mood. What's the point in writing trivia - This conversation or that food? So last year I decided once and for all That keeping a journal is not for me. If I've something I really want to express I'll wax lyrical with poetry! Written 11th September 2021 For - The "J" Contest... Sponsor Constance La France

Useful to read what one's feelings were back then, but even better as a resource for names, dates, addresses, etc., but you will never know that unless you keep one!

Natasha, a fine, meaningful poem which speaks to the way we so often procrastinate. Then, later, we realize what we should have done...hindsight, you know. Then, like you, sometimes we just face the facts and realize something we have been encouraged to do is simply not for us. Good writing.
