Halfway Through (July 1)

And here I thought I was having a lifetime wasting.

Just out of the sudden comes the realization
that we all have something to live for.
It's not like I didn't know about it before
it's just that just now it has sunk into my brain.

And I sure hope it'll never go away.

Here, in the middle of the road
all I can think of is that I've got another
one hundred and thirty two poems to go.

And I'm not out of ink.


Welcome to The Wasting July. This poem marks the middle point of the whole Words A Day project, and I'm really proud to have come this far. I hope you guys have enjoyed it as much as I am, and I hope you've found one or two poems that may be of your liking.
