Day 4 of the Writing 201: Poetry Course!
Animal, Concrete, Enjambment
We all leave marks on this
solid ground. Whether literally,
or figuratively; Our prints will
be left for all to see. Like a
dog running across the sand,
or an eagle soaring through the sky. The
air will change around us, because we leave our
imprints on the lives of people. Every person we touch,
every being we help, we leave a smudge of paint on the canvas
of life. We as individuals, cause shifts in the time, and make changes
for the future generation. We don’t rightfully acquire this world from
our ancestors; we simply mold it for the forthcoming span of mankind.
Many a people have tried to find the cure to mortality, but the truth
of the matter is, though our marks are much like paw-prints in the
sand, they differ greatly. Whereas their impressions disappear
with the coming wave, our fingerprints will not fade;
because we have touched a life and that is how
we stay immortal.
PS: It’s supposed to be a paw print. 😛
