On May 13, 2013, I started WordsofWisTIM to further my journalistic talent and to share my knowledge, wisTIM and opinions with others. 2,845 views, 69 followers, 149 posts and 1,267 tags later, WordsofWisTIM lives on and continues to prosper, thrive and grow in so many ways just as I feel I’ve grown in this last year. I read through my posts, all 149 of them, when I was making my Tim’s Favs page and I could really see the difference between how I was writing then and how I’m writing now. It’s been a blast and I’m happy that I gave it a go.

Then again, WordsofWisTIM wouldn’t mean anything if it weren’t for my readers
Because a writer’s thoughts, words and aspirations are quite meager
If no one’s taking them in on the other side.
My words are like a tide.
There are a lot of waves out there. I know, I’ve been.
I have to hope the extra punch, extra heart and extra feeling that I put in
Knocks the air outta your lungs, makes an impact
Makes a difference and paints an abstract
Because that’s what I want to be.
I want to be “something that concentrates itself in the essential qualities
Of anything more extensive or more general, or of several things.”
I need to hope my writings ring.
I have a goal in mind.
It’s a goal that I did find.
“Existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence.”
That doesn’t mean I’m looking for magnificence.
It means that when my time here is done
I want to be able to say that I did more than have fun.
I want to be able to say I made my mark
That I had a profound, significant and stark
Effect on somebody
And not nobody
That my presence here
Meant something dear
And that I won’t fade
Like a masquerade.
I want my words to be sublime
Make you think, this guy’s worth my time
That I’m able to elevate myself above the rest
Not to say I’m better or that I’m the best
But to say I’m worth listening to, worth reading, worth understanding and worth knowing.
I’m young and still growing
But I know what I want.
Many are still on the hunt.
Some want fame or riches. Mine is to be missed.
My want is purpose.
It’s simple and complex
Because purpose perplexes.
It’s both solid and flexible
And yet at times it feels unattainable
But if you keep trying
And keep believing
I think you’re bound to find it some day.
You can’t just take your insecurities and doubts and throw them away.
It’s a game of hide-and-seek and you’re on the seek.
Don’t let the frustration and seemingly hopeless situation get your hopes bleak.
Just keep looking for what you want most
Because just when you’re about to give up the most
You’ll fall upon it after all your miserable strife
And that will be the happiest and most reassuring moment of your life.
In conclusion, thanks for sticking with me and reading. It matters.
