adashofsunny Prompt Nights – Brevity’s the flower that contends not with bunch, rather it blooms  by Sanaa Rizvi

 

I am a being for a minute time out of a vast eternity
flesh and blood, bone and gristle, brain and soul
formed of passion, navigating toward maturity,
enlightenment, some validation for this breath.

I am one of billions, part of all, yet all alone
a single voice that feels bewildered, bohemian, descant

I want to matter now and when I’m dead
I want the wind to remember my fragrance,
the trees recall my smile, the sun my fire,
the land forlorn for my footsteps and my song.

    Deep down I think many of us feel this way that part of us lingers on ro be remembered fondly by all that we have loved. This is really beautiful Debi.

    This line stands out, “I am one of billions, part of all, yet all alone”.
    Sincere and expressive piece, and some of us can relate. Beautifully penned, Debi!

  6. Love this. Mostly because it is true: we are so many things, but in the end we are ourselves–full of wants and needs and daring.
