Poem: "Holding Onto Life"

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Holding into life is a poem about her wanting life to slow down so she can enjoy each moment. Life keeps on moving too fast making her want to keep the past inside like a seashell to have forever. She wants to live life to the fullest and count her blessings each day.

"Holding Onto Life"

Her heart begs each moment to slow down

but the pages of life turn too fast

with the sands of time drifting away.


Like a seashell

replaying the sounds

of its distant past

she wants to feel the joy

of his arms wrap around her.


Living life on the edge

like there’s a tsunami coming

counting their blessings

along the way.
