Writer Highlight Featuring: Jay Long


Perfect Ending

Under the glow of a corner streetlight
an old man stares into the dark heavens
thinking back on his life
the joy he shared
the hearts he broke
the tears he cried
the smiles he couldn’t contain
during moments of pure bliss
thankful for each one
for every choice that turned him
down paths he never thought to take
grasping on to a notebook
each page filled with miles
from days he thought would never end
the laughter and love created with his words
one simple thought wouldn’t leave his mind
somewhere in his travels
had he made a difference
when he finally left this world
would he be remembered as a poem or a poet
