PAD Challenge Day 6: Fill-in-the-Blanks

 PAD Challenge Day 6: Write a blank in the blank poem.


With prayers and actions,

love and hope,

thoughts and dreams,

hands and feet

bone, blood and flesh-

I fill what I can fill.


I birth and occupy

imaginable spaces.

I cultivated myself to

welcome yes’s as much

as I accepted no’s.


a little regret may find a home

in my mind, body, and soul.


Truth be told,

there really is nothing

to be sorry about because

when it comes to life’s

who’s, what’s, when’s, and why’s,

these questions in life

will never be naturally elementary.


And in between the multiple choices,

that I am a recipient of,

I can’t say I’ll circle back

or leave unanswered

because I’m still alive,

aligned with purpose

to fill in the blanks of my life

with joy, gratefulness and happiness

for what I am,

who I am,

and what I’ll be

before there is no space

where life can't be.
