POETRY: A Decade.

To Melvin 'George' Hawdon, Beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather.
Still one of the greatest men I've ever known.

It's really been that long,
19th May.
It's your day.
And like a grenade in my hand
I wait for it to go off
The realisation,
That this year marks a decade.
Granddad.
I was 8, you've missed a lot,
The birds and the bees,
Me falling in love,
Exam season,
My 18th birthday,
The pub; necking a pint.
All things I know you'd of liked to see
Me, grow up.
And I am sad, for I have no stories
Not like the others do
Of you.
I can't tell my children about you,
Not like I've been told about you, the legends.
Even though these moments you missed,
I always spared a thought, about you, asking...

"Would you be proud of me now?"

And I hope you are.
It's really been a decade,
It's really been so long.
But it still hasn't been forgotten,
Nor will it ever be.
Rest in peace Granddad;
I miss you,
You've missed a lot
But
I hope I make you proud in the long run.

BLOG: Working hard or hardly working?

Well, I can say yes, I have been slacking on some fronts but on others I haven't and with exams on the way pretty darn quickly it seems as though kicking it into a high gear would be a tad of an understatement. So, it seems as though stuff may be taking the back foot whilst exam season closes in.

 However, it's ok because for English I'm reading alot of books (No, you don't understand what I mean) so I could possibly review those in order to like keep my posting up. I think long prose and stuff maybe abit too much to squeeze in with revision and stuff; considering, that Dead West can be like up to 7 A4 pages of size 12 font...

Although I'm pretty impressed with the new idea, it's snowballing in my head with everyday that passes so by Monday I should be able to post up a Musing that contains the finished and complete details of the story and such. Apart from that POR and Dead West may have to wait. Vlogs too maybe delayed. It's sad, I know but I need to think about my future here. If I want to do this as a profession I need to go to Uni.

 If I want to be Poet Laureate, need Uni.
 If I want to leave, need Uni.
 In all I need University.

So... let's just see how it goes for a bit but y'know it'll be an adventure.
