Here is a sonnet I wrote about the sun. I hope you enjoy.

Aurora

A sonnet by Angela Prendergast.

 

Morning, gleaming bright, blinding

The middle child of the great beyond

Darkness drifts away in fright

Summer flowers; delicacy grows so fond.

 

Soundless, it rises and falls

Squinty eyes, liquid tears below

A march of the day, standing tall

Kisses all, from friend to foe.

 

Bright, bold, beacon of hope

An endless cycle to return

Lambent, luminous; all awoke

Steady, lessons for each child to learn.

 

More than the size of this sphere; fervent, bold

You allow human life to behold.

After much growing and maturing, I have learned to put the breaks on my emotional reactions. I am a born and raised Italian.. it is in my blood to react quickly and become sassy! However, the past few years have taught me a lot. Pause.

After many experiences with irrational people, I have evolved. I was tired of fighting back with people who could never be wrong. Now I no longer give a reaction to negativity. I think it is extremely important to remember to PAUSE. Do not let emotions cloud judgement and reactions to minor annoyances. If someone is irrational, you will never win. Playing into their games and reacting will spark up their fire. Don’t give their narcissistic drama the time of day or your precious energy; that is YOUR energy and they do not deserve to drain it from you. I remember this by repeating the word “unbothered” to myself in these tempered situations. I challenge you to do the same.

Just tell them to SWERVE and walk away.

Much love. XoXo. Angela

I am a writer, a listener and a speaker.

I believe in myself, as well as the magnificent students in my classroom.

I want sincere happiness for those who carry the burden of protecting my heart.

I am a writer, a listener and a speaker.

 

I feel excited about my future as a lover of learning.

I wonder, can admiration conquer hate in this cruel world?

I worry that countless, valiant efforts will not lead to triumphant victories.

I am a writer, a listener and a speaker.

 

I understand that I am Angela Prendergast and I am my own person; responsible for both careless and thoughtful actions alike.

I am understood by the misunderstood.

 I am a writer, a listener and a speaker.
