30 Day Poetry Challenge: Day 10

Day 10- Pick a one line song lyric to serve as an epigraph to your poem. Then, write the poem to accompany it.

“Life’s too short to even care at all.”

In this moment, here and now,

We are as young as we will ever be, they say.

Well I don’t know about you,

But I feel too old to be this young,

Too bottled up to be this free,

But for one time, a moment, an hour, a day,

Letting go is the best I can do.

To live careless, free and reckless,

Abandon all worry,

Act without fear,

Take risks.

For life is too short —

I think you and I both know.

Life is beautiful if you can appreciate it.

For all I wish, for you and I,

New experiences, hope, renewal,


I want to jump without thinking about the fall,

Climb without worrying what awaits at the top,

Swim without the paranoia of water creatures surrounding me,

I want to


I want to


I want to
