Live free and prosper

Live free and prosper

A Poem by Mia
"

inspired by my brother...

"

Wishing stars float right above

Jumping regrets try to reach

But the past is too heavy

And the future is just a day dream

The ghost of Christmas present beckoning you

In the here and the now

We are nothing more than this moment

Nothing less

 

Wanting to be content

Hoping to get there

Missing actions

 

In those time machines clocks still tick

Your days are numbered

Youthful spirits obscure reality

 But Death is infinite

With no tomorrows promised

We are all called to live free and prosper

we must live in the now...no guarantees of future, and somehow we must get rid of the ghosts of past, otherwise we just are mired in self-pity...with no motivation to live free and in each day itself.
beautiful piece, Mia.

The present is all we have, we forget that so easily. Beautifully worded.

' We are nothing more than this moment ~ Nothing less '.. .. and that's why every second between is so vital to live, learn and love in. Your words are true poetry but your logic is also an example of how to live and that encompasses everything. Wonderful, Mia!

~ your brother inspired you really good my friend... I have said this before that time is an illusion... that today is as important as yesterday... so treating each new day a brand new one on which is better than yesterday with the added positive learning insight, then you'll in the road to a prosperous life...

a really good piece Mia my friend...

Dude, awesome.
Great piece of poetry! That's really all that I can say about it. I just love it. When I review I usually find something to criticize or point out, but this poem at this moment in time is perfect! Enjoy the moments while you have them.

You have amazing insight and it really shows in this piece. I adore how you implement the theme of seizing the day. No matter what is happening to us, the world is still revolving. Clocks are still ticking our life away. Bittersweet really.

Greatly written. :)
