Today is Memorial Day, a somewhat somber occasion. It's a time to honor and mourn those who have died while serving in the military and protecting us citizens. These brave, courageous people sacrificed themselves in order to protect others. They fought for a cause they believed in. They're amazing and truly deserve to be honored for all they have done.
Always be true to yourself, who you are as a person. The people who really care about you will appreciate you for who you are, no matter what. So feel free to stay true to yourself and flaunt how amazing you are.
Desolate silence Echoes in empty confines Of an unknown space
For today, I have two slightly different versions of the same poem! The first version is a haiku, while the second is a tanka poem. As such, they are of differing length, and phrases/words have been added and rearranged in each poem. However, I wrote both based on the same theme and ideas.
I talked a bit about Zen's background in my introductory Feline Friday post, but I didn't really go in depth with all that she went through. So today, I want to share Zen's story, and all that she's overcome throughout the years.
