  I haven’t posted on here for long over a year, but I haven’t been absent. I feel like my days on this site are passed and I have decided to make it inactive. I will be leaving the page up of course, I have too much work on here to delete the entire site and I’m too lazy to transfer it, but I will no longer be posting any new poetry to this site. I started this blog in 2010 with some poems that I wrote when I was fairly young and as went on and my style changed and evolved my posts had become increasingly sporadic, I felt as if my work didn’t fit in on this blog anymore. I am no longer “Lil’ Red Writing Hood”. I had been considering closing it at the end of 2014 but didn’t. Instead I created a new domain, but I never used it because I wasn’t sure how to go about transitioning over to it, I’m still not sure truth be told. But as I said, though I haven’t posted anything I haven’t been absent from WordPress. I have set up a new domain that will serve as my main site from now on while this will serve as a secondary site and archive. Thank you to everyone who followed me and took the time to read my work and encourage my writing journey over the past 7 years. I hope you will continue to support me and be apart of my journey.

Thank you,

Atirah Jewel

Life is a Piano Lesson

Published November 14, 2011 by atirahjewel

Life is a piano lesson, a challenge,

Some are successful in life,

They play the keys brilliantly with no effort at all,

Some try once and play poorly, if they even try at all,

They give up, on both their lessons and their life,

But there are a select few who know that they are not the best,

Their fingers may accidentally hit A instead of C from time to time,

But they still try their hardest,

They try until they succeed,

They try with immense effort,

They are the true pianists.
