In the Making

What makes a future sure?

Between the days, blurs

Clouded eyes that long to see

A desperate need

To endure

 

What makes a person dream?

Quiet nights, haunting themes

Books held tight in ready arms

A silent alarm

Wakes minds asleep

 

What makes a life well-lived?

Write feelings; forgive

Find the best sentiments spurred

In eloquent words

That outlive

 

What makes a person die?

A long hunt for the why

An insatiable heart

A blind love for art

The poet sighs

This poem is about: 
Me
