Day 13 – National Poetry Month

April 13, 2019

Prompt #13: Parallel Universe: Imagine yourself living a completely different life, based on making a different decision that impacted everything else.


My Life’s Pages

Some days I stop and wonder
What if I hadn’t opened the first book?
The one that took me under
A spell that held me captive


Had I not gazed upon those crisp pages
Ran my fingers along their edges
Visited kingdoms from the kitchen chair
Cowered in a lion’s daunting lair


I don’t think right now I’d be writing
Maybe I wouldn’t think it exciting
And the words that now entice me
I would not find so enchanting

– Lucía Garrido (8th grade)
