Read and Write, Day and Night + One Amazing Life

October 14, 2014

Read and Write, Day and Night
I write and read about this life of mine,
because my past, present, and future depend on it, more than you will ever know.
Each word that flows from the ink of my pen,
has more meaning than anyone will ever know.
The words that come to my fingertips as I type, 
has more value than anyone will ever know.
Each word I read,
has more definition than you will ever know.
I will continue to read and write,
day and night and so much more than you will ever know.

Prompt: “You must write, and read, as if your life depended on it.”
-Adrienne Rich

One Amazing Life
I feel as if I have a plan,
I will tell you this, it is difficult man.
But I know I have one life.
So, it's time to live and learn,
make mistakes.
Succeed, and explore,
laugh, love, and cry.
Discover who I really am,
but also stay true to what I already am.
I will make my dreams come true.
To never lose my passions,
like writing and looking at life through a camera lens.
You see, I have one life, and I am making the best of it.
My life is precious and valuable.
My life is wild and chaotic.
My life is what I choose to do with it,
and I tend to make the most of it.

Prompt: “Tell me, what is it you plan to do 
with your one wild and precious life?”
― Mary Oliver
