Word of the Day: The Daily Spur



Today’s word is teenager. Get the definition from dictionary.com or from the urban dictionary

When I was a teenager
nothing made sense
doing my homework
test day was tense
Then there were sports
and music and friends
If you were a teen once
you know how this ends.

Having Pride

Having pride in nothing,
like nothing real at all,
is having dreams of nothing,
no good or bad to call.
Thinking that you have pride
is bad or incomplete
Is living life with nothing,
No good and bad compete
So keep your pride together
In check where you can see
That a little pride is okay
It showcases who you’d like to be.

Nox picked the word for the Daily Spur writing challenge. You can check it out here

The Clerk

A typist or a taylor
A waitress or a host
A maitre d at a fancy place
Is the job that I’d like most.
Right now I’m just a clerk
In a bank right up the street
Standing for eight hours
On my sore and aching feet
I didn’t pick a job like this
I didn’t want to work
My girlfriend said I had to
She said I was a jerk
And so I stand here working
With money stacks galore
Waiting for my shift to end
And then I’m out the door.

The Daily Spur Word of the Day: Apple

Find it here: https://thedailyspur.wordpress.com/2021/03/21/apple/

My Love

The apple of my eye,
The pie in the sky,
My sun when it rains,
My sweet sugar cane.
I never knew  we’d meet,
You’re so awesome, so sweet,
You caught me by surprise
With that twinkle in your eyes.
Now our love has grown,
I no longer feel alone,
you fill my heart with glee
I love that you love me.

Shadow: The Daily Spur

Check out the Daily Spur for today’s word: https://thedailyspur.wordpress.com/2021/01/13/shadow/

Somedays it’s there
somedays it ain’t
Somedays it’s dark black
it looks like dark paint.
No one escapes it
Everyone can try
A shadow is scary
It makes scared people cry.
we don’t know who’s hiding
we don’t know how far
the darkness will get you
but it won’t leave a scar.

Western: The Daily Spur

Written for the daily prompt from The Daily Spur: https://thedailyspur.wordpress.com/2020/07/08/western/

Heading West

When I was young and so naïve  
I listened to my folks.  
I found what they said I did believe  
Even though most of it were jokes 
The story of the wild west 
was fantasized by me 
I wanted a pony who was the best 
so I could just ride free 
I thought a cactus was spiky 
no matter what the kind 
I guess they are, or most likely, 
for those that you can find 
So, what’s the point of my rant 
when I am from the east 
I want to go, but find I can’t 
until I’m eighteen at least.

***I realize I only used “west” instead of “western” but I figured it would fit since that is what the poem is about***
