Truly Live… Day 28 #OctPoWriMo

Prompt: “Choose one of the quotes below and use it as an inspiration to writing today’s poem. I won’t provide you with a word or sentence prompt, this is your chance to start “doing it yourself”.  Naturally we will still be around to write with you, but I guarantee it will be fun to come up with your own way once you start.
Quote I chose:
You lie there kicking like a baby, waiting for God himself
To lift you past the rungs of your crib. What
Would your life say if it could talk? 
—from “No Fly Zone” by Tracy K. Smith (Pulitzer Prize Winner)


My answer? Life would tell me to….

Truly Live…

Unbend – become born to darkness

Kiss goodbye to the light

Pay no mind to looming death

–          It happens.

Upholstered regrets will merely

Lead us to be desolate;

Existing somewhere amid

–          Life and death.

Instead, note the whole journey

So, between ungainly steps and

Enthusiastic leaps

–          You’ll truly live!
