Writer’s Digest Day 25 of Poem a Day is taking “Everyone” and adding a blank onto the end. Today, I happened to get two inspirations at once when trying to write the poem and I tried to combine them. Well, here is my attempt… Half-asleep, I’m not terribly conscious of what I just wrote, but this is how I operate. Enjoy.
A life force stronger than our society can hold.
And to be someone, to amount to something
is a personal goal whose outcome we focus too much
on the world’s perspective of us.
However, to be somebody to you,
to make you smile
to support each other when we feel weak,
that is a goal worth pursuing.
We can love everything through each other.
Being somebody by existing
In my world, you are someone,
You could be everyone.
