"Carpe Diem!" Scream at the top of my lungs Making this my theme Letting it roll off the tongue
Seize the day Make it my own No matter what they say Let my opinion be shown
**** out the marrow Enjoy every minute Dodge all the arrows Put my whole heart in it
Don't choke on the bone Don't lose my pure motives Keep my mind in the zone Be sure, not just sort of
Take the bull by the horns Wake up in reality Or the mind will be scorned Go against the normality
Yell back at the world I can make my stand Hurricane in a whirl Of what they have planned
Do my own thing Swim against the tide Let my voice sing My opinion will not hide
I will not conform It is overrated It may cause a storm But my opinion shall be stated.
“I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and **** out all the marrow of life, To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die Discover that I had not lived.” -Henry David Thoreau
Let's begin the journeyTo refreshing our soulsWith poetic words on paper We take the bull by the hornsTo achieve the dreams that our parents have not dreamed for us but our own Where we conquer each of our failures to wear the crown of our successes Hold on tight to your roller coaster Let not the ride of life terrify the potential that lies hidden inside When your soul screams to be kept alive Rewrite your story with a climatic twist Before the clock stops and your heart regrets Never achieving anything
Toast to all the people who enjoyed seeing me fail,but today is a new day. No snooze button needed because my dreams kept my head ablaze and it's time I,we,seize the day.
Carpe Diem it means seize the day. Today, I'm asking her on a date. This may sound odd, who knows if I will still live tomorrow so I'm doing it today. If I won't find my own voice, no else will do it for me.
Running in circles round-and-round Impatiently waiting until the day you're found Why do we do this to ourselves? Pretending we're unboxed toys lining store shelves Waiting for the one that will open us up to add value to their life Until that day comes, we create and dwell on constant strife We need to let ourselves out of the box We must stop waiting to be invited to the others' flocks Arise from your prison, you won't regret this decision Already in Hell, how scary could it be outside of your cell? Seize the day, no soul can enjoy life in a truly lonesome way
We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life.
But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?"
Answer: that you are here; that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
