Winter Ease

(Written originally on March 3, 2014)

My mind is at ease

On this brisk winter night,

Sitting at my desktop,

With my lamp glowing bright.

As of now nothing matters-

Not those quizzes online,

Those asinine assignments,

Or newspaper deadlines.

I write in my journal

About today and yesterday,

Then of three days prior.

I’ve missed several days

Of writing about my college life.

I try to write each day

But with homework and social media

The memoirs get delayed.

It’s good to have this peace

On a cancelled school day

Yet like the snow outside

My ease will melt away.


By David Harris

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
