A Challenge-Poetry

Here’s the challenge (play along in the comments or on your own blog-just make sure tag back to me so I know you played).

Write a 20 line poem (no more, no less) about an important moment in your life.

Here’s mine:

The day you were born changed everything

and probably not in the way you think.

Before you, I was

serious,

never emotional,

and too busy being busy to

stop and enjoy life.

You gave me the time to

slow things down,

breathe,

and appreciate.

As you got older, I got even better.

You thought I was taking your hand,

leading you through life safely.

I suppose, in a way, I was.

But in a bigger way,

a much bigger way,

it was you leading me and teaching me.

The day you were born changed everything

in exactly the way I needed.
