This Is How Life


Crumpled pages of a tattered heart.

Broken quill of a feathered pen.

Blured words through tearry eyes.

This is how life ends.


Colored paper fresh off the press.

Colored sharpies ready to pass the test;

The test of time to where they run dry.

This is how life begins.


A beautiful song left out in the rain.

A harmonic melody that sings my name.

A crack in the pavement,

A stab in the back.

This is how life transcends.


A rainbow in the sky.

A child's laughter.

A prayer answered.

This is how life mends.
