my poem almost went viral

internet is such a funny place.
Back in March, I wrote a little piece of poetry for my post 4 minutes for the sky & posted it on my Instagram. I later pinned that post on Pinterest and almost forgot about it.

TA-DA!!!! meet this champ


With every sunset, 
a new hope is born, 
an old expectation dies

I had this weird little connection with this piece. Perhaps because it was about the sky that would give me hope every day or it was just another writing connection, IDK it was pretty much on my mind all the time. One day, I was randomly surfing on Google when I typed it out of nowhere and BAM!!!!! there were so many posts popping up with this poem written over them.I opened each and every social media app available on my phone to see if it was there and it was. In some way, it was there.   Most of the photos (like 80%) were of actual beautiful beautiful sunsets from different parts of the world, the rest of the % were selfies or videos but  H E Y  I was surprised beyond belief.

MY POEM WAS OUT THERE ON THE SKIES I HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE, PEOPLE I DIDN'T KNOW AND PLACES I HAD NEVER BEEN TO.

maybe when I said that the internet is a funny place, I don't mean it at all. It's a rather miraculous place or something. I have been writing for so long that my words have become more than words for me. The joy of seeing them in someone else's reality is astounding, super astounding, in fact. This lil poem made my name a legit hashtag, Google recognizes it and dayuummm it's everywhere.
I am just too happy to see it happen. The words in this poem were spilled from the very same instrument; a pen, that taught me how to write, that taught me how to carve words on the paper, it taught me so many things. I owe it to so many people, too, like my mother who made me make sense of these words and the list goes on. I can't tell you how this little piece of poetry matters to me now and how it did back then when I finished writing it exactly on that one evening.

I'm excited for this poem that almost went viral. And maybe the internet is actually a very funny place.
