Poetry- "Unfinished"

by Jennifer Patino

There isn't just one chance
There can't be when there are so many
staggering, suffering souls
shouting silently to themselves
day after day
night after night

There can't be
countless encounters we miss
because of this--shall we laugh?

Dance on daydreams and soar
Climb highest mountains and more

You are not finished
There aren't enough hours
to fill the unfilled
so let each moment be yours
for the taking

Your body is old and is breaking

Breathe then, in memory
of each smile and triumph
And continue along in
your own little way

For each blink of your eyes
is a new day
