For my 2016 writing project, I’ve decided to write a single line of poetry every day for an entire year. Below, is August’s poem. Enjoy!
We are wrapped in the heat of summer.
The sun's rays stab at our exposed backs.
Fall offers temporary relief.
An explosion of color everywhere we look.
Winters here are brutal.
The rain never seems to stop.
Finally, spring brings forth new life.
Something is reborn within me.
Another trip around the sun.
Nothing quiets the soul like the cosmos.
Eternal darkness sure feels small.
Maybe we are alone.
Staring across the passage of time,
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Not even at this moment
Is the pain of alone ours.
Our lives are intertwined.
We are stars filling the void.
Soon, we will realize this truth.
Hopefully, before it is too late.
Our moment is short.
Time never relinquishes its steely grasp.
Love with all that you have.
Before you know it,
Darkness will consume.
Be assured of your place in history.
Know your legacy.
Let time pass.
Be the best you.
The seasons of your life should reflect that.
Be good to each other,
