Seize It: A #30in30 Poem

Seize the day poem

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

People that you knew

a long time in the past,

they fade away so casually.

You knew it wouldn’t last.

 

All those memories you made

are tucked away and filed.

All those games┬áthat were so fun –

spinning, climbing, being wild –

 

will have to wait another day,

a week, a month, a year.

For now you have to clean the tub,

fold the laundry, your deadline’s near.

 

Being grown-up ain’t that fun.

The day is hard; get up and run.

The time, it passes like draining water.

Wash the dishes, hug your daughter.

 

Take a breath.

Watch the stars.

Kiss your lover.

This day is ours.
