a Poem by Raquel Swann


A life is like a book

it has a promising begining and,

a finite ending.

How it will end, for some,

has not yet been written.

Chapter by chapter

we forge ahead

watching the words

appear on the page

reading and learning.

The actions you take

in Chapter Six

could determine the outcome

within Chapter Eighty-six.

You only have one book, and

it cannot be edited.

Act now!

Before the next chapter is written.

For it could be your last.
