Hey, just an idea (pleeeease somebody try it, lol)
...
Try to somehow depict the different aspects of Life, all in one poem (or in a short series of poems), all the different stages and happenings...this is very open to different interpretations, I was just interested in reading what people think about the patterns of Life.

Anyways, please take a look and think about it--please post responses in Open. THank you all so much!!

I'm an idealist..I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way =)

Life is a circle - a beginning - an end

At one, she sat on her potty chair
At five, her life was little girl toys
At ten, she thought she knew too much
At fourteen, she discovered boys.

At twenty, she was lost in sin
At thirty, creating a new life
At forty, work became her aim
At fifty, no longer a wife

At sixty, she began to fade
At seventy, she had thinning hair
At eighty, she had little time left
And sat in the corner on her potty chair.

i'll post a link.
and i think this may inspire a verse....
thanks for the idea!

and PDV...that's a great piece you've composed above. a bit of bittersweet.

it's our struggle for identity that leaves us all unknown
