Something that puts off a lot of people. The thought of learning a new set of grammar rules, vocabulary and all the other nuances that come with that language.
Foreign languages fascinate me, the thrill of learning how to communicate and express yourself in completely different language is so exhilarating to me.
Let me take you through my journey through learning one of my favourite languages; French….
It’s always what’s trending
What’s popular right now
All of those things that never make me go wow
You follow and conform like bees to the hive
I’d rather be alone, by myself, an eagle flying free
In your need to fit in you no longer see what I see
In your need to be popular you’ve lost your originality
I have always tried my best
Regardless the outcome
Yet every single time, my efforts go unseen
Sometimes I feel, like blowing a gasket or two
But for some reason, I choose not to
If I speak my mind, I become the ‘bad guy
I do nothing wrong, but…
At the end of it all, I remain feeling Guilty
In the corner I am, quiet I remain
You use what you see, the surface you’ve barely scratched
For hidden deep within, something most astounding
Only to be seen, if you peel the layers
Not for the feint of heart, never for the nay sayers
For here reside, all that they believe is theirs
The maze of my mind, the labyrinth of my thoughts
Calm your heart, the battle need not be fought
A steady soul, is all that is required
But because you do not to try, you’ll only be left with Assumptions
Boundless emotion, this senseless conviction
I try and try, with no intermission
The path becomes cloudy as I lose all vision
Now I realise, it was never meant to be
All those times when I thought it was we
But now it’s too late, never again will I see
As I sit silent at this old willow tree
Left all alone, nowhere to call home
Now I recede, back into nothing
And slowly, so slowly I…. Disappear…..
This was supposed to be yesterday’s prompt, but oh well
After what happened in Priestown, Tom, the Spook and Alice get a little time to rest before winter comes. They must go to the Spook’s winter home in Anglezarke.
On one cold night, the bell that calls the Spook is rung and Tom must go and see who it is. He arrives and a hooded figure is awaiting, dressed like a Spook. He has a letter for Mr. Gregory and he leaves just as mysteriously as he arrived.
Tom gives the letter to the Spook and upon reading it, he is not pleased at all…
