NaPoWriMo Update #3 & Poem – Magnanimous

Hello there! Another week has passed. I’m finding that all the days are blurring into one, which is both concerning and strangely relaxing, I think. ๐Ÿ˜€ I am a mere five days away from completing my Freshman year of college, and let me tell you – I am so ready!ย The last six weeks or so have been definitely stretching, and I’m fairly mentally exhausted at this point, not to mention emotionally exhausted with all this change and uncertainty that is flying around. I’m so ready to be done with this school year and move into the summer months. I am uncertain about what these upcoming months will hold, but I do know that I will be going home to spend them with my family, which I am incredibly excited for!ย 

This week’s poetry writing has been surprisingly good actually. I’ve been able to do a lot of processing of emotions, as well as putting my imagination to good use – two very healthy things! ๐Ÿ˜€ Sure, many of these poems have been written during the wee hours of the morning… But I guess I’ve got to put those hours to some good use! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

Today’s poem deals with the issue of forgiveness. For some reason the word magnanimous popped into my head one night and it refused to let my thoughts alone. It’s such a full and descriptive word, and I love the meaning of it. Anyways, my thoughts went with it where they wished, and this poem is the product of it. I hope you enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚


Magnanimously –

Is there room in my heart

for all those letters of forgiveness?


Lavishly โ€“

I have received this love

and so I will bestow.


Graciously โ€“

I look to see the image

that you bear behind your scars.


Eternally โ€“

My heart goes out to you,

this is the beginning of forever.


So that’s that. I hope this poem struck a chord with you – I know it did with me. I’ll see you next week, on the other side of both NaPoWriMo 2020 and my Freshman year! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’d love to hear any thoughts you might have about this poem. Let’s chat in the comments!ย
