In hunting for something to post for Throw Back Thursday, since I’ve been a slacker again as of late, I found myself mostly amused by the page in my old writing binder I have ignored and flipped past time and again… my welcome page. Like a good deal of what I post for TBT, this was written when I was in high school, and it seems silly and cute now, though I’m sure that was not my initial intention.Welcome!!! [yes, I overused my exclamation points] You are about to step into the mind of Terree L. Klaes. Everything in the following pages was developed in my mind, and then typed out for your reading enjoyment. I hope that as you travel through my stories and poems, you are touched, shocked, and overwhelmed. I write for my own pleasure, but most of all, for others to enjoy. The mind is limitless, as is my writing, and I hope you find that I am skilled and talented. Thank you for your time; you will not be disappointed. Yours Faithfully, Terree L. Klaes

I believe this poem was written not long after I first left home to go to school.I’m Feeling More than I Can Write Nothing… Is that what I feel? I don’t know. Maybe I’m scared. Maybe I’m lonely. I miss my old life some, yet begin to love the new one. But it’s not getting back to normal the way I thought it would. Everything has changed for me, and nothing can I predict. I’m moving on. I’m changing… being changed by my surroundings. I’m getting tossed along, doing what I’m forced to do. I used to feel in control; I chose what shaped my life. I now welcome the unexpected, though it scares me. No one is here to guide me, to show me my mistakes. But I know I’ll make it through this test of independence. I am strong, but I’m still afraid. Each choice I now make determines bits of my future. Much like a puzzle, the pieces are there. But without the final picture, I’m only guessing where they go.
