NaPoWriMo: Day 18 (Chapters)


Poetry Prompt from NaPoWriMo:  This one comes to us from Stephanie Malley, who challenges us to write a poem based on the title of one of the chapters from Susan G. Wooldridge’s Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words. Or, a chapter title from a favorite book.

Each day we write our own chapter and most people don’t even realize it.

You, The Author

When the final chapter closes
Will the last words linger
On each question the book poses
While along the spine runs a finger
Will the book be tossed aside
Regarded as a pantomime 
Or something a bit more dignified
That will stand the test of time
Your parents write your prologue
Life gives the option to be heard
While you can’t write your epilogue 
How do you want to be remembered?

Read it again on (yes, I do get paid/read): Day 18
