Poetry Corner: Life begins at…

Life begins at…

It doesn’t

My life is.

It has no start

No banging gun

To ring in my ears

No race track.

Leave the hare behind

Crawl to a finish line


I have a time on earth

To unearth knowledge


Live love and happiness.

I have a place

Held down to the ground.

Gravity is proud

To have caught another soul.


I have friends

And laughter

Forget what comes after.

We need together

Not forever

To be alive.


My life is going

I like when it’s slowing

I want more.

Regret is pointless

It drags in questions.

Jump for decisions

Because I am living.


Life begins at knowing

We need no time.


Words: Lucie Ellis
