Act

Act like a lady.
Act your age.
Or, act out of character
and tear your page
to stutters and stars.
Start affairs, start wars.
Just act.

I like the unexpected twist in this.

Act only to the best & honest feeling of your true, beautiful self. I like the sudden turn of the mood in your poem. :)

Love the message....no decision and non-action is a decision...it is taking a stand. I prefer to act!

J Cosmo Newbery said...

We are all acting. Have no doubts about that.

Old Egg said...

This life we have been given must definitely be used and your writing emphasizes that point.

Mary said...

Indeed, we have to act! Can't just sit and look out of the window.... Like your approach here, but not the idea of starting wars.

Yes, just do it! Don't falter when the intricacies have been resolved. Agreed, good advice MZ!

Maybe tomorrow?

Jae Rose said...

Yes - definitely tear up the 'expected' page and fill it with your own being! Wonderful

Bekkie Sanchez said...

Do something! I love the attitude and the poem!

lily said...

Here you go ... an uber goofy new character for you ;) But you'd better talk to me this time, or I'll think you don't love me. And you know how that makes me pout. :(

Acting in any chosen manner is a commitment, and we need more of that in our world,

Yes, I'll go for the unladylike and indecorous!

Susan said...

Oh, you shake me into my senses! I think I'll go act.
