Tuesday Writing Prompt – A life well lived

Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge

Today’s prompt— Write a poem using evanescence, trill, and longevity


I pray that I pass into evanescence gracefully 

I don’t seek the thrill of longevity

But wish for a life well-lived, well spent

A life that had a purpose and aim to it

A life where I managed to live up to the standards I had set for myself

What is the use of long life I ask you

When it also will pass in a blink of an eye

Be it fifty years or an even hundred years

It will be over before you really know it

I want my soul to be free, to trill like a bird, joyfully

  1. Beautiful. Flash to memories where many things have become obsolete or antique.. but efforts to move with time with happiness but with little pain while remembering the ink.
    I hope have interpreted the poem well

    1. Thanks a lot Tanvir. Indeed looking back with sense of accomplishment is important. Spreading joy while we live and to
      Be remembered with affection when we depart.
