Gone / Poem

In this post I mentioned how I took some old blog posts and turned them into poems. Here’s the second one, rewritten from this post. Again, I didn’t change too much, mostly just the format. Although I didn’t include the entire post but contained it so the poem conveys one message. Gone (Written by Sarah […]

Blueberry / Poem

Last August I wrote this post, and I go back to it a lot – and other posts written last winter – because they contain such poetic sentiments, even though that wasn’t my intention. I took it a step further and decided to turn that post into a poem, so here it is! I changed […]

Jesus / Poem

Jesus (written by Sarah Bennett) Someone once asked if Jesus died from a bullet. They knew nothing of a cross, of the torture that lasted hour upon hour. They knew nothing of the cost or the blood of the Lamb. They thought He died in a second, Not knowing He was born to be sacrificed. […]

March 2021 Reading

This was a slow month. I finished three books but haven’t made too much progress with what I’m currently reading, either. But that’s okay! Here’s what I read. Breath (James Nestor) I gave 4 of 5 stars. This was an entertaining yet factual book exploring the science and history behind breathing; both the good and […]

Please / Poem

Please (written by Sarah Bennett) How could I bear the sorrow of forever, To this I need You to atone. God save the ones closest to my heart, Lovingly bring them home. I cannot live with a burden so large, There are not enough words to describe pain. God save the ones closest to my […]

When people find out there’s usually one of two responses; either, “that’s the best job, you’re surrounded by books all day!” or “retail is the worst, what do you plan on doing in the […]

The Parts that Hurt / Short Story

The following short story is one I wrote for a class last trimester at uni. It was both the hardest and easiest thing I’ve ever written. Before I even started the class I knew I wanted to write something along these lines, but I didn’t know whether that would take the form of a novel […]

February 2021 Reading

This month is rushing past and I don’t really know what to make of that. I’ve also started uni now, but I’m trying to study during the day and spend half an hour or so before bed reading a book of my choice, instead of reading only books for uni. So far, so good! In […]

Reintroduction / Poem

Reintroduction (written by Sarah Bennett) I am no longer scared to tell strangers that my dream is to be an author, Only the people who know me well enough to say my writing is not that good. Dreams are never big enough for those I’ve yet to learn the names of but crowd the space […]

Eight / Poem

Eight (Written by Sarah Bennett) I am so many dreams poured together, Keeping me alive. The wanting is woven into my name. I am confusion and love and what is often called naïve But is actually compassion. Forgiveness. I have been given grace so how can I not pass it on? I am the drought […]
