A Jubilant Life In The Style Of Hongo

At 8 I lived for accomplishment loving the feeling of purpose in life. The way I smiled at my parents when they gave a thumbs-up.

I lived for hope and faith knowing what I wanted to do in life and pushing towards my goals. Trusting in people that they would do what’s right.

At 21 I will live for joy not wanting anything less or sometimes more. Happy with everything I have.

I want to be able to look back at the best moments in life; graduation from high school & college, marriage, birth of children & grandchildren.

I wanted to make everyone around me proud and to have had pride in myself.
I lived for a jubilant life.

We were doing a project in class about poems and I decided to do this type of piece. I looked inside my past writings and found this and my teacher, parents, and friends loved it. I hope you will too.
