Poem: Writer’s Inspiration

I am 19 years old, and am at a point in my life where i’ve grown to love and accept myself for who i am. I have selected a major that suits me perfectly (creative writing) and i have a stable relationship with the best man ever. I believe this is the sweet beginning of a “finding yourself” stage of my life. Below I’ve included a poem which nearly perfectly represents the struggles i’ve been facing.



Pretty picture, isn’t it? Well it is! I am happy with my life at the moment, and it took me quite a long time to get to this point. Lately I’ve been asking myself, what are you going to do with yourself after school? How will next semester be grade-wise? Will meeting this person put my life in a different direction? What will i be doing three years from now? Will my parents be proud of me?

While all of these things matter, it is most important for oneself to remember they are the captain of their own ship, and every personal choice one makes leads to a domino effect of possible outcomes. Life is what you choose. With this knowledge, i will continue to walk forward and face all of the obstacles and trying times that are necessary to conquer in order to make it to the end.

Opportunities in life come when theyre meant to. You must have the confidence and self- reliance to make the most of each one.

  1. Hi Abbie-
    This poem was exactly what I needed to read. I’m a year or so younger than you and sometimes feel overwhelmed that I’m suppose know what I want to do with my life…I’m just trying to work on my goals everyday and hopefully things will work out…right?

    1. Hi Ava,
      Exactly! I struggle with the idea that maybe I’m not doing enough and that i’m falling off track because i haven’t decided 100% what i plan to do with my degree. But the most important thing to remember is that we are SO young, and that there is time for us to find our purpose. We just have to be patient and keep doing our thing! 🙂


    1. I do believe that we are all our own worst critics, but it’s important to take negative thoughts and spin them to be positive. If you keep telling yourself to focus on the positive, eventually it’ll become a habit. I’m so glad you’ve related with my words! 🙂
