Act Now

 Blood
boils,
long
and lasting.

Sun
glares,
harsh
and burning.

The chin tilts up,
the spirit of determination 
dancing,
in her eyes.

We think the past defines who we are;
we think the future defines who we are;
but neither do.

The actions fueled by our burning blood,
by the beating sun,
those are what define us.

Our actions, our responses, 
our interactions, 

the here,

the now,

they define us.

Who are you right now?

<3 Eva

  3. I love this! It builds so well, so that when you reach the climax/point you are very involved and the message strikes you in a real way.
    (and a C.S. Lewis quote is always applicable)

  5. This is wonderful! It's true we aren't defines by the past or future and we often forget it's, like you said, the now that defines us!

  6. "We're driving towards the morning sun where all your blood is washed away, and all you did will be undone." I was listening to this song while reading this and Your poem kinda seemed to match with it.. <3
