by Heather Tucker

I feed off the passions of life
of love, lust, desire
the will to be great,
to raise myself beyond the horizon

life is short
it can be cut of
in the blink of an eye
so I will live, truly live!

For I am one of the blessed
that can hear music at sunrise,
smell love on the wind,
see a rainbow of color across a blank page

life is nothing but a miracle,
a star that will forever shine
if you only have the strength
to grab life with both hands
and leap into the great unknown
