So Many Words

Could you have chosen
a different way to say it?
So many words
So little time

We’re always watching
never deep in the game
Immortal spectators
we won’t stop listening

So many words
I’ve longed to say
How to write them now
so I won’t forget

So many reasons
we should never stop being
Live life to its fullest
always on the carousel

Could I have chosen
a different life to live?
All the moments in this one
they’re exhausting me

Could I have chosen
a different way to write this story?
Maybe so, but for what
Too many words to make every idea

Could you have chosen
a different way to say it?
So many words
How can it hurt
To look before you leap

In the final song
I won’t let you down
you’ll find me last stanza
Last poem
Last verse

I’ll stand in the crowd
one in a million
Getting a glimpse of you
You’ll find me in the final song
Last rhythm
Last word…

Could you have chosen
a different way to say it?
So many words
So little time

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
