What You Make It

Make decisions,
make mistakes, make them
honestly, make them safe.
Make a ruckus, make amends,
make a choice, make
more friends.
Make a difference, make a
mark, make it better,
make a start.
Make out,
make love, don’t make haste.
Make a sound; make a statement,
make less waste. Make it better,
make up your mind,
make it matter, make up for
lost time. Make it clear, but don’t
make it tough. Make a little extra,
at least
make enough. Don’t
make it too quickly, but
make it on time (you don’t have to
make it rhyme). You might not always
make it home, but you will
make more of your life, by
making it your own.

April 27th is Poem in Your Pocket Day
a day to celebrate poetry by selecting
a poem, carrying it with you, and
sharing it with friends and strangers
wherever the day takes you. In the
workplace, coffee shop, shopping mall,
or out on the street, poetry can brighten
up the world around you. You may have
a favorite poem you wish to share, but I
offer you this one, in case it’s not handy.
