FROM TINY POEMS

Share the goods

 

I started this in order to capture the tiny beautiful things that accompany the words, the feelings, the nouns we can’t get out of our heads. I’ll write one for you. I will. Just email me one word: thethingslearned@gmail.com

Written for Colin  on October 29, 2013 based on the F. Scott Fitz quoute “Think how you love me, I don’t ask you to love me always like this, but I ask you to remember. Promise me you’ll remember. I’ll be different, but somewhere lost inside me there’ll always be the person I am tonight.”

I’m Jen Glantz. I’ve been a published writer for over 13 years, spilling my words into magazines (ranging from style to scuba diving), newspapers, websites and even this one time, a speech, for someone who didn’t speak a word of English. What drives my words, my site, my writing, is the power of relating to people. I find that many people, especially young girls, feel so alone and quite often they feel embarrassed. I want to shatter those feelings! I want them to read what I write and understand that it’s okay to be a little outside of the box, but most importantly, that it is okay to just be who they are.
