A Poem by Suzy Q

The butterfly effect.


Today, influenced by yesterday

Tomorrow, influenced by today

Every day, a reflection of our past

Every hour, following the last.


Time passes quickly

But we don't fail to seek

Those cheap thrills

That will cost us next week.

That was nice and deep and truly a poem with rhymes involved. You did an excellent for a first poem ever written for yourself. Its short and simple and sweet explaining the times of today and yesterday but, yet letting us know to never abuse those thrills to the fullest that it would ever cost us next week. So anyways excellent poem and keep up the wonderful job. Showing time is in our hand.

As you read this you can't help but agree with every single line. A lot of truth in a few lines. Nice write.

My earliest stories are some of my favorites, too, although their awfulness makes me laugh. :) Nice reflections.

Oh wow that is all to true! To often we act first and think later when we have to pay the consequences. I'm having a hard time believing this is your first poem:) It's absolutely amazing!:)

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy books and that's kind of the same thing. Always felt I'd find the meaning on paper, don't think I've found myself yet, yet happiness is right where it is.. more..

You. You.
