I always forget the words to this poem. So next year I’ll write them on my shoe…IN SHARPIE!
Do you have your own version of this poem? Finish it in your own words!
Here are more VDay videos with Chicagoans expressing their thoughts on Valentine’s Day:
These videos got me thinking… Sometimes Oftentimes, when I want to express myself (vocally) the words just aren’t there. I get nervous or my head is racing with 1,000 thoughts; I want to say them all and it just doesn’t come out how I had planned…I hate that! You know earlier I had it down perfectly and then afterwards I’m left thinking, “Brain, how could you do this to me? Of course NOW you’re calm and collected.. Quit telling me all that I should have said ” …so frustrating.
While I may not always be the eloquent speaker I’d like to be, I take the good with the bad and to be honest, I can write one heck of a letter! The words just come to me! Am I alone on this or can you relate? Expressing my true thoughts and feelings is easier for me in this respect. I’m not sure why but whatever the reason, the words just flow. They flow from my brain through my hand, right onto the paper (obviously the process is more complicated but I’m not talking science here).
So if you’re like me, take advantage of Valentine’s Day with the power of a pen (Sharpie pen of course) and paper. Take the opportunity to tell the people in your life that you love them and why you love them. Express yourself and don’t let the day go to waste, despite your love or hate for VDay. I guarantee that you will enjoy it so much more if you express the love for those you care about.
Now let me end by asking you: How do you express yourself?
