Accepting Reality

one conversation changed everything.

1-9-1 Life writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a 1-9-1 poem, that's a three line poem with one syllable in the first line, nine syllables in the second line and one syllable in the third line.

The only catch is, the word "LIFE" must appear either in the TITLE of your poem OR in the BODY of your poem. Your poem doesn't have to be about anything in particular, but it must include the word "LIFE" in one of those two locations.

Display any way you wish. Add music, GIFs, animations, marching bands ... whatever. Remember, Words beat pretty pictures. :))

It is hard to come to terms with the realization that what we had talked about and planned for all these years, is just gone. Never gonna happen. I now have to refocus my vision. I must take time to do the things that make my soul happy.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
