The Road Home by TheEmptyChest
The Road Home
Shot this on my way home. Had to pull over and get my camera out. :D

So NaPoWriMo has come to an end, and I can honestly say I'm glad I participated. I churned out quite the collection of poems: some great, some not-so-great. But the important thing is that I was writing, and that I wasn't second-guessing myself. 

I've gained quite a few new watchers as a result of NaPoWriMo, and I'd like to take this moment to thank each and every one of them: theLonliestOne, Blacksand459, Alienesque, lolomgcatlover, Newroleplayer, ecigstarterkits, Livelovemaria, amilavann, blessinginthiscurse, nothing-glory, jenni-e, TheLoomofFate, gliitchlord, Namco-NintendoFan-88, RewindGamer, ChaseT34, pimzy-official, PhototropicSpaceGirl, Darkest-Jade, Cllovelly, and DeLaBrunante -- Thank you! :heart:

My plan for the month of May is to focus more on photos and drawings, so prepare yourselves for that. ;)  

As a side note to anyone who may be curious, the coworker (who I mentioned in my last journal) resigned. I have mixed feelings about it if I'm honest. I never intended for her to leave, I just wanted all the bull crap to stop. My supervisor told me not to feel responsible--that I did the right thing in speaking up and that her decision to resign was hers alone. But I can't help feeling a little weird, although I have to say I've noticed a significant difference in the short time she's been gone. A positive difference, that is.

Does it matter
ultimately
what we have around our necks—
a crucifix
the Star of David
a pentagram,
or whether we drop
to our knees before bed
or lay with a copy of
Dawkins’ The God Delusion?
Does it matter
ultimately
where we spend our Sundays
or what we see in a kiss:
the hand of God
destiny
coincidence?
We are composed of the
same particles—the particles
that make up
the earth
and each other
and that should be enough.

Yes, that should be enough.
Mattering
NaPoWriMo, Poem #30

We all matter, and we all are matter... and really, that's all that matters. :P

She etches I am
not crazy
into her arm;
strawberry trails run.
Strawberry Trails
NaPoWriMo, Poem #29

I don't write about self-harm often, mostly because it's already so prevalent on this site. But I had this image in my head of a girl carving the words "I am not crazy" into her arm and decided to make a haiku out of it.
