Semicolon (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #11)   Leave a comment

The semicolon means our life doesn’t necessarily end when it stops abruptly;
Instead we can keep on writing until we reach the ending we were supposed to have.
But it can also mean our life is one long unbroken sentence: never-ending, never breaking,
Only bending as we flow along the path cut before us
Finding what is in store for us until we finally reach the ocean and move on from what we know,
With our experiences and relationships the legacy we show for it;
The only way we stop is if we damn our own flow
And end the sentence before it really should be done.

– Shaman Romney 2018
