Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


i just love it
when a plan
comes together.
an intention fulfilled
is a great feeling,
especially for
someone like me
with a track record
of finishing nothing.
failure is my middle name
was how i thought of myself,
but that’s a terrible self-image.
i prefer seeing myself
as a person
who gets at least
one thing done
a day.
too small,
you say?
the longest journey,
i reply.
literal pen in hand,
i can start
each day
with an intention
the rest of the day
is celebration.
