You Only Write Once
Why does this matter?
Why do I care?
Why would my generation hashtag and share?
For starters we live
in a technological age
where every word, thought and idea
is written on a social media page.
We write to share our story,
words to express who we are.
would our words go as far?
Secondly in school,
our teachers read our work, our papers
to see what we have learned
or what we can improve on later.
We write to prove ourselves,
words to represent our knowledge.
would our work be acknowledged?
Finally, one life is all we have
to recognize that our ideas have significance,
To truly understand and appreciate
that they contribute to our existence.
We write to explain,
words to represent why we matter.
would our ideas remain after...
After we've died, after we're gone,
after we've lived and then moved on.
Would our words stay behind?
Or would our words carry on?
You only write once
is the action you take
so that your words and ideas
are the impact you make.
