My Experience

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_10d5

That’s right. I am dabbing in this ballet photo shoot (more to come) to celebrate my amazing experience with blogging and the evolution of Maysa Rose from its birth in 2013! I never thought so many people would genuinely care about all of the random thoughts that I document on this public diary, so I am absolutely astounded with its growth especially within the last year. This space gives me so much joy, and I am incredibly thankful for this site and everyone who reads it!

The Story: 

I began Maysa Rose back in 2013 as a highly talkative fifth grader with an ink pen who filled entire notebooks with stories and poems. My dad recognized this budding passion for writing and he suggested that I begin a blog so that my words could actually be read. I jumped at the opportunity, and I really kept up with blogging before I practically neglected it about a year or two later. After awhile, I decided to pick it back up again, but I didn’t want to start where I left off. I completely redesigned my site and actually deleted all of my old posts to get a clean slate. I started posting very frequently, and I really began to find joy in writing again. Blogging has been my absolute obsession ever since!

My Experience: 

I don’t even know where to begin; being the author of Maysa Rose has been such an amazing experience, and it has significantly changed my life for the better. My writing has matured so much through the years, and I have met so many amazing people who continue to inspire me every day. This site is filled with so much positive energy, and the encouragement has really helped me through life’s unpredictable moments. Sometimes, all it takes is ONE positive comment to turn the entire day around, and a couple bloggers have written such beautiful words that I still remember to this very day! I actually cannot recall any offensive or negative comments, so I am very blessed for that. I never imagined that Maysa Rose would grow as much as it has, and I am so thankful for this opportunity to share my passion with the world. Thank you all so much for everything, and I cannot wait to see where this goes from here!!

Through The Eyes

In continuation of my previous post:

As promised, here is the poem that I have submitted to the America Library of Poetry Contest!! 🙂

eyes

Through The Eyes

Through the eyes of a dancer,

the movements unfold,

telling you stories that have never been told…

 

Through the eyes of a writer,

you read deep into the soul,

feeling the pages of secrets slowly unroll.

 

Through the eyes of a ballerina,

you experience the truth

about all of the days of work that we spend of our youth

 

Through the eyes of an artist,

the vibrant canvas unwinds

as all of the shapes and colors combine…

 

When you look into the eyes of me,

tell me… What do YOU see?

For, this is all that I am and ever hope to be…
