Poem: "Enjoy Today"

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

Summary of poem

Enjoy today is a poem about life throwing a slam dunk when you least expect it. It forces one to look at life differently.

Discovering a new path to reach his destiny.

Enjoying each moment life has to offer him. Taking nothing for granted.

"Enjoy Today"

Like a ping pong ball
bouncing back and forth,
life throws a slam dunk
when he least expects it.

Forcing him to play a different hand,
reshuffling the cards,
finding a new pathway
to reach his destiny.

As his best laid plans hit a brick wall
waking him with a jolt,
he takes nothing for granted,
making the most of each moment.
