[Poetry Friday] Nothing But the Truth

Kudos to you for being strong! Keep on keeping on!

Fats here.

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week! I’m grateful that the weekend is almost here. I’m ready to hibernate and recharge. Please enjoy these encouraging* words by Nikita Gill. Layout and design courtesy of Canva.

Many thanks to Rebecca Herzog of Sloth Reads for hosting this week’s Poetry Friday round-up!

*For all those times you feel like giving up, please remember these words.

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).
