I earned a degree in Liberal Studies from American University and my passion is writing.
Single in the night sky as one star sits atop the Milky Way
Staring down at my unearthly expectations
How far can my stream of consciousness, stream?
A single idea to return to school bolts through my freckles
Lands on my brain and ignites my passion
I filter through subjects that caused me pain
Nodding at past failures and nudging myself forward
I leap onto the collegiate platform and choke on the trail of prior knockouts
I don't look back
I make new tracks and follow an inner core strength that is so superior
It shocks me and I look up into the dark sky
I spot that single star
All is well as the nighttime shields me
For I plunge into years of triumph
As the years sharpen, I find my star again
The older student that I am, never forgets that shining star!
