Life…what we make it 

 
Life is what we make it
From the first breath to the last
We go on adventures
Making memories of our past
So kiss a bit longer
Fight a bit less
Speak the words needed
So our hearts may express
The love we have
The love we hold
The words that’ll bring joy
To the sadness in the world
The adventures, meanwhile,
May not last so long
But the imprint on a heart
Will forever live on

Out of sight, in the mind

Lori Vrba, Blindfold, 2012 Toned Gelatin Silver Print Edition 1/20

Can you still see?
“No, it’s pitch black” you say,
With a tone of uncertainty.

Now think of the things you love
Can you see them all?
“Yes, they are all there.
In my reminiscence wall.”

Now think of the things you loathe
Can you see them too?
“Yes, I see them creeping up
from the abyss of my mind’s view.”

Do you believe it, when they claim
“Out of sight, out of mind?”
“Not after this blindfold
Covered up my eyes.”

“You can close your eyes
to things you don’t want to see”
but know there are many things
that await for you in your memories.

“You can close your eyes
to things you don’t want to feel”
but know there are many things
that are felt in the heart’s zeal.
