What Would You Do?

Today’s poetry prompt is to write about conquering the world. What if you had no boundaries, nothing counted, and you could do anything you want. Basically, pretend you are Bill Murray reliving Groundhog Day for one day. What would you do?

There is only one thing I would do. I would spend one more day with my dad. I would show him how his passing has made me stronger, how it pushed me to begin stepping out of my comfort zones, and how proud I am to be his daughter.

Have a great Thursday!

By Jesi Scott



If the sky were the limit

And there was nothing I could not do,

I would bring him back and spend one more day with him.

I would wrap him in my arms and tell him

How I love him.

I would show him what I have done in his name,

How his leaving inspired me to change my life,

To live as if there was nothing I could not do,

Because the sky was not my limit-

His love was,

And that was boundless.

She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
