FROM 16 >> 17 !

From Sixteen to Seventeen

17

A poem presented by Devan Horn

Seventeen again, 17 today, please give me another day! I think I have something to say…

Last year, since my sweet16th on the brink of becoming 17, 2018 I was a bad teen. ♥∴

Divorce, heartbreak, friendships, and breakups as well, was on the horizon, like a titan on rising –

which has tightened, but now gone and now shining!

Yo, my bro, there’s more, what are you to expect?  Like what the heck?

Ðepression, money, unhappiness, and friends on my mind, I was blind and caught in the twine…listening to my mama cry! 

Wanted to give up blogging, no use trogging, getting down bogging!  What’s the use?  They think I’m Zeus or have a screw loose.

You know, maybe I was feigning and unkind, and just needed to unwind.

Was in quarantine and being redesigned!  Came back like I’m on running cloud9!

Reunited with a girl, who came back into my life like a swirl, she’s a real pearl!

A beautiful friend of mine, let’s hope things don’t end, I commend and defend her.

Happy we have made amends.

I don’t do much blogging.  I just run the town and not much jogging.

CELEBRATE my ßirthday like it’s K-Day on a Tuesday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME, I’M 17 TODAY!

 

Read on for the explanation of my poem.

Three hundred and sixty-five days in my life.  Sounds long, but was like the blink of an eye.

Open your heart to hear my heart …

 

Last year, since my sweet16th on the brink of becoming 17, 2018 I was a bad teen. ♥∴

I wasn’t as much a bad teen, as it was a bad year in my life!!  It did however felt as if my behavior and just being around caused some of the negative events that had happened.

 

Divorce, heartbreak, friendships, and breakups as well, was on the horizon, like a titan on rising –

which has tightened, but now gone and now shining!

In a year that felt like smooth sailing, I was suddenly confronted with the fear of my parents’ threatening divorce!

I nearly lost good friends due to petty fights!

During this year and all the crises in my life, I gave my heart to the Lord (HEY NICE) … guess what?

ALL WORKED OUT WELL!! 

 

Yo, my bro, there’s more, what are you to expect? Like what the heck?

There’s more to come …

 

Ðepression, money, unhappiness, and friends on my mind, I was blind and caught in the twine … listening to my mama cry! 

Want to give up blogging, no use trogging, getting down bogging!  What’s the use?  They think I’m Zeus or have a screw loose.

Lots of emotions and things happened and caused me to nearly give up my hobby – blogging.  I literally wanted to draw a line through all those negativity.

 

You know, maybe I was feigning and unkind, and just needed to unwind.

Was in quarantine and being redesigned!  Came back like I’m on running cloud9!

I needed to rest and find peace in my heart and mind … and that’s what I did.  I took a Sabbatical for a few months.

Cool!  Life turned out for the best for everyone !! 

 

Reunited with a girl, who came back into my life like a swirl, she’s a real pearl!

A beautiful friend of mine, let’s hope things don’t end, I commend and defend her.

Happy we have made amends.

Need I say more?

 

I don’t do much blogging.  I just run the town and not much jogging.
