Fragments From My Life

"Fragments and crumbs of life, all the little pieces" John Ruskin, 1853 I knew in the beginning What I wanted in life Where my writing might take me Where I might end up Only plans change direction Paths change course, unwanted When passion burns bright It can set your heart free Life's greatest triumphs and tragedies Remain alive in our memories Forever etched among my pages Statements impacting others To more than just survive Wipe clean the subconscious slate Prepare to be inspired by life's events And the importance of all the little pieces "I believed that life began when you believed in yourself" Won 4th place Written by: Shannon Deane Contest: All The Little Pieces Written: June 21st, 2011
