What's going on here?
Well Amanda and Emily both have goals to write more. Amanda wants to write a poem and a half a day for the next year, while Emily wants to write for National Write a Novel Month (NaNoWriMo), which is usually in November, but she is going to do it from now until her mission on May 18th. Here is were you can follow us in our goals! Leave comments, encouragement, and what ever else you feel like.

This mask got a little too tight
Had to tear it right off in the middle of the night.
With my eyes all aglow and my fangs finally free
 If said don't be afraid it is only me.
Me as I really am not the person you desire
Not the perfect child pulled from the mire.
I've got feet that long to run
And teeth that will crush bone
Eyes full of fire forged long ago.
 Hands made for grabbing
For holding
For reaching
 Legs made for chasing
For running
 For leaping.
 But you pulled that mask over my head,
Muzzled my emotions with evil dread.
Hoping that this mask would keep us all safe.
But I pulled it off quick
Tired of that struggle
 I don't care if it scares you
I don't care if I’m trouble.
 I'm just trying to be honest
To trust and love myself
So I’m tearing off this mask
and leaving it on your shelf.
