March Into April

Prompt 163: Reciprocate

Time scampering past
Days full of new adventures
Life adjusting, changing, a constant metamorphosis
My shell crumbling, giving and taking,
Emerging quickly into the light,
My heart and soul given freely
I now redeem my reward
A fair trading of struggle bartered and in return
A collection of memories inherited
Reaping what I’ve sown
Seeking peace, obtaining balance
Give me a moment, I’ll give you a lifetime
Or perhaps,
I just ride off into the sunset


A Change of Sails


Renegades is a better word. It implies a spirit of adventure.

  3. I like the hint of uncertainty at the end. The idea of how we impact the lives of others, and how a life is layered bit by bit like a collage, is one that hit me strongly.
