Welcome to Four Lines! I have a goal I would like to write at least four lines of poetry or a haiku every day for the rest of my life. I'm excited about this challenge! Also, along with my daily poem, I will be reading at least four lines of another author's poetry. I'll try to include that here also. So I'm thinking - how difficult can it be to read and then write one poem a day? We will see! - Claudia

Even after all this time -
  I miss what I never had
when growing up,
  what I never had,
that started my war.

Even after all this time -
  I miss what I never had
when growing up,
  what I never had,
that started my war -
  my war I'm ending.

Even after all this time -
  I miss what I never had
when growing up,
  what I never had,
that started my war -
  my war I'm ending
in peace negotiations.

Even after all this time -
  I miss what I never had
when growing up,
  what I never had,
that started my war -
  my war I'm ending
in peace negotiations
because I love and believe.

Even after all this time -
  I miss what I never had
when growing up,
  what I never had
that started my war -
  my war I'm ending
in peace negotiations
  because I love and believe,
not just a little or some of the time.

Even after all this time -
  I miss what I never had
when growing up,
  what I never had,
that started my war -
  my war I'm ending
in peace negotiations
  because I love and believe,
not just a little or some of the time,
  but in the majority.

Even after all this time -
  I miss what I never had
when growing up,
  what I never had,
that started my war -
  my war I'm ending
in peace negotiations
  because I love and believe,
not just a little or some of the time,
  but in the majority.
Now I don't miss what I never had.

Even after all this time -

Now I don't miss what I never had.
  I have it.
