Quiet Moments

Recently, I was asked if I wrote poetry. While I haven't written anything for a little while, I managed to find a few things that I scribbled out. As I find more things, I'll consider posting those as well.

I have such respect for poets. One poet, Shane Koyczan, whom I discovered through Tumblr, was so inspiring that I had to share it on practically every social media site that I could. I'll also make a separate post dedicated to it.

But before I get to that, I want to share a piece that I found in my collection that kinda stands out to me. This one is called:

Quiet Moments

"It's the quiet moments
When you look at me with
That glint in your eyes I've
Never seen in anyone
Else before ... It's times like
These that make me want to cry.

Because stolen glances
Give all the answers to
Every question I've ever had.

They say you don't care
And you care too much.
That you see everything I ever was
And want to be a part
Of everything I will be.
It's in these quiet
Moments that my heart breaks
And the world falls away.
I avert my gaze and
Remember that quiet moments fade."

You can find me on any of these links and more

Until next time

A Tribute to Cory Monteith

Thank you, Cory, for all you've inspired us to do.

From the very first second of the Glee tribute to Cory Monteith and his character, Finn Hudson, I was in tears. From all the memories each character shared, to Finn's letterman jacket passed from person to person as a reminder of the impact he left on their lives, to every song they sung in his memory, this tribute didn't allow me enough time to finish sobbing.
Here, I live-tweeted all the feels I had during the episode.

Scrolling through my tumblr, I came across several fan tributes to this wonderful man, thanking him for his incredible inspiration. Although I didn't always watch Glee, when I did, I always took a liking to Finn. This character was a great friend to everyone, so kind, and so loving, and from how everyone talked about Cory, I expect he was not unlike Finn. So as I scrolled through the tumblr tributes, I decided to leave my own little farewell:
"I cried for the loss of a wonderful person, a great character, and for those closest to him who undoubtably miss him every moment of every day. The people crying their hearts out tonight on Glee weren’t just characters; they were real people facing real emotions. They brought this tribute to Cory to life and brought us impossibly closer to the person who’s blessed our lives over the years. He will be very dearly missed."
On this episode, they brought to light the little dash between the year of one's birth and death - that little line that represents one's entire life. Cory has accomplished so much in that brief line. He's inspired the lives of so many people to do so many good things. He's lived a very good line - a very good life. And just like countless other people, the impact he's left on my life will always be cherished.
