Fruitful Friday

The Lockless Door by Robert Frost
It went many years,
But at last came a knock,
And I thought of the door
With no lock to lock.

I blew out the light,
I tip-toed the floor,
And raised both hands
In prayer to the door.

But the knock came again.
My window was wide;
I climbed on the sill
And descended outside.

Back over the sill
I bade a ‘Come in’
To whatever the knock
At the door may have been.

So at a knock
I emptied my cage
To hide in the world
And alter with age.

Hey, when opportunity knocks. An interesting poem to say the least, not my favorite but decent enough as is. It’s a very simple and fun poem, referring to the window of opportunity to take said opportunity. He let it pass and he became filled with regret (a lot can relate to that, I’m sure, cause that’s just life), but lo and behold, another opportunity arose and he took it. So what to take away? Don’t give up when the going gets rough, but hope for a better tomorrow and persevere, it’s never too late. And also, take any opportunity that arises, you never know what doors it may open. Thanks for reading and if you like what I write, be sure to follow as I update my blog fairly regularly.

The Musically (Un)Gifted

Music has never clicked for me. In fact, I didn’t even really get into music as a hobby until my sophomore year of college. Before I go any further, I want to make it clear that I cannot play music, heavens no. But I do enjoy listening to music. There’s a certain connection when you listen to a really good song and what I find inspiring is that music crosses all culture. A world without music is just bland. Musicians tell stories and there’s a song for everyone, no one ever says “that’s my movie”, or “that’s my book” or “that’s my game”. But people will always say “that’s my jam”. Music is truly a beautiful thing and hearing my roommates play the piano makes me jealous, one day I might learn, but for now I’m content with just being a listener. Thanks for reading and have a good one!

Question of the Week: Dogs or Cats

A question as old as time, are you a dog or cat person? Me? Well, of course I have to go with dogs. Dogs, after all, are man’s best friend. Dog’s are loyal and kind, get jealous when you pet other dogs, and will love you till the day they die. Cats, however, are malicious evil creatures. Make one wrong move and your cat will methodically plot your demise. Cats have sass, will hate you if you leave them for too long (forget about going to college), and will destroy everything you love with their claws if they deem that you love that stuff more than you love them. Like I said, pure evil. Dogs however, will always be happy when you come home and get depressed when you’re gone, but never let that depression turn into hate, cause they trust you’ll always come back! And that’s the thing, a healthy relationship is built on trust, so therefore dogs automatically win! Feel free to comment below and thanks for reading!

Quote of the Week

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”
-Abraham Lincoln

I’m not trying to incite anything, but I’ve been thinking a lot about the government as of late. With the elections coming up (still a ways off, I know), I am not happy. Jeb Bush, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Hillary Clinton (I honestly don’t like her, although many would disagree), the selection is not looking great. Men with the knowledge and vision to change the world don’t run for office and instead we get political masterminds (a lot are idiots, but a lot are also good at deceiving) looking to shove their agenda down our throats, doing not what’s best for the people but rather only that which benefits themselves.  Sorry for the lack of inspiration this week, but I thought this would be kind of fun! Thanks for reading and have a good one
