Life Experienced is the second of four poetry books released with words penned during high school and college. A young artist, Haleigh, created the cover for this book of poems to depict experiencing life with nature.
An excerpt from Life Experienced.
A babe newly born and full of energy
as a new sports car full of fuel and
ready to go.
Then, he meets new highways
With bumps and potholes on the way
Which causes a pierced tire and confused
spirit wondering what will happen next.
Often pushed on the bumper, he rolls blindly
into the next obstacle.
However, mending of the body and mind is
possible and more fuel is necessary as he
begins to wind down.
The years go by and soon he is a classic
not soon to be forgotten but
Respected even more and enjoyed.
The appearance becomes worn and wrinkled
surely not an undented race car anymore,
only an ornament.
Soon he dies and is carried to the yard
of skeletons as a whole, or dust.
If he is fortunate, a monument of him
will help others remember his energy
until the end of time.
In the hearts and minds of those who live
will he be used to improve upon those
future sports cars to be born.
