Riley welch is a poet from texas living in colorado. She posts three original poems a week. 

The Red (Root) Collection

You know the drill - I title each notebook I use according to the color of the color and binding, this one was red and covered in root vegetables. 

This is the poem dedicated to my time with this notebook. 

I feel like I'm learning.
Like the lessons of being surrounded by writers
are greater than my 45,000 dollar,
4 year
education.

Should I feel guilty about that?
Maybe.
Maybe not.
It shows commitment at least.

I fill up books a bit slower now.
And spend more time on edits.
Reading
and
re-
reading.
I haven't figured out how to become perfect yet,
but I have doubts I ever will.
And at the very least,
I am becoming
more
and
more

content with that.
