"What moves men of genius, or rather, what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough."
- Eugene Delacroix


Will you degust all the flavors in life?

Will you consume all the happiness?

Will you savor all the pain?

For what good would life be, if it were not digested?

Just a collection of moments,

And emotions and rain.

 

Are these things just obstacles designed to steer us from our path?

But if it weren't for these things, 

Life wouldn't be the same.

We have a choice, whether or not we want to cherish it.

Even if it's only an interconnection of relationships,

A passing phase.

I like this poem. It's thoughtful, it's beautiful, and it has a strong message. My favorite line is "Just a collection of moments,/And emotions and rain." Well done!

Write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect

My thoughts exactly!I mean 'Even if it's only an interconnection of relationships,A passing phase' That's my motto. Even though I only read and write prose, I am falling in love with how you write, so perceptive. Love it!
