I commit

normally I am a very committed person when i say I will do something I really try to follow through because I value my word. This poem is ironic because I wrote it in April when I was sad, fixed it up tonight and am experiencing a mini breakdown. I will not be staying in Rhode Island for as long as expected, returning home twelve days early but no worries returning to school in the fall. It turns out that I do miss my family and job and NJ. So 8 days till home my count down is real.

I am a follow through type of person

When I commit I am there for the long haul

I expect the same from everyone else

And for that I am constantly disappointed by people.

I use to believe everyone was wonderful but now I am a cynic

Part of a species that has done more harm than good

Almost no exceptions

I include myself and my loved ones.

Image a world only Gandhi’s

Very few very selective,

Peace would concord all

And human impact would be minimal.

I will never get to see that world

But for now I can work towards a smaller impact

Because that is my commitment to myself.

By the way I started insanity work out this week and after 4 days of sticking with it I really do hope to get through all 60. selfies will be posted at some point. Thanks for reading
