Envy is exhausting


The chicest people

you've never heard of

wake up with more energy

eat better, sleep longer

feel happier + find

more time for balance.

Some days it feels impossible

to rise, shine, believe

in good and


the world. 

— Drew Myron


This is a poem "ripped from the headlines."

Also known as a found poem, a cut-up poem, a warm up poem & an exercise for the writing muscle.

This poem is also a reminder why I should give up fashion/lifestyle magazines. 


Tell me, what are you writing?

Finding my way not chic, not hipster, but in no way a soccer mom! Maybe I am a “searcher” , for now, anway.
