Sonnet CCX

The hats I wear are many, varied, large, and small:
my music hat is vast and eats away my time,
but brings me endless joy, residing in its prime;
my academic hat encompasses my all;
my thinking cap is great, but can’t but help but rhyme
in iambs, forming sonnets; last, my hat of dimes
is small, though teaching kids for pay’s a joyous brawl.

But like an average Joe, my hats of family
remain supreme, as brother, son, and happy teen.

Though being part of such an awesome bunch of folks
is daunting, frightening, and strange at times, though fun.
I love the hugs, the bliss, the kisses, endless pokes,
but more than that, the love we share’s a glowing sun!


A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
