Impressions On This Land:

by Scott Cole   Oct 18, 2017

Life is but a treasure hunt
That we seek out to find,
Those fortunes that sustain
Our curious hearts and minds.

The blueprint to happiness
That path to great riches,
The wealth of our survival
That story of our existence.

From the moment we're born
All of us are on a mission,
To decipher the map of Life
And unearth our expedition.

As we search for answers
To unscramble all the clues,
The definition of our lifespan
Our summaries and reviews.

Remember Life's an adventure
Our footprints in the sand,
The direction of our purpose
Our impressions on this land.

    "Impressions Of This Land" By Scott Cole 10 points.

    I found this poem by scott to a rather compelling piece with a simple message.

    If I read it correctly and I hope I do.

    Nothing can be planned to perfection. You must experience life. It follows no plan or thought. Sometimes things will just happen. Sometimes good, sometimes bad.
    Whichever way it turns out we must deal with it.

    How we deal with it, is the important part! Regardless of what we will do, or do not do, we will leave a footprint. Something that someone will always remember and something that will affect.

    Yes we may stumble along the way, But still what do you miss if you don't even try?

    Structurally I found the flow to be almost perfect and the way it carried through from start to finish encapsulating.

    Thank you (10)
