World of Words Wednesday Memes..


For 3WW:(heave, valid, ponder)
As I heave the load of everyday
It seems heavy of late,
Seems like more work and less play.

This leads me to ponder
I wonder why and wonder
If this heaviness is a valid pain
Or just a little strain.

Maybe I have just become less able
Or maybe a little more lazy
Such that this everyday business
Of late has made play something hazy
And work is now completely my tale.

For ABC Wednesday's  letter of the week, F, I am continuing my theme of women authors: 

Anne Frank - The Diary of a Young Girl - I always wished I would have the resourceful courage of Anne Frank! Anne Frank, as a writer of a journal, hiding away in Nazi Germany, and Anne Frank, the young girl growing up and learning about herself - both have always fascinated and awed me. This is not a work of fiction but facts which made it all the more capable of making me feel - rage at what happened to Anne and the millions of others, at the horrors of war, sadness at the thought of the lives lost, smiles at the amusing anecdotes Anne wrote about made all the more so because of their situation, and awe at Anne's spirit and strength. 

 “It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
