NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 1 – “All Will Be Revealed” by David Ellis

Hello everyone!

It’s the first day of April, which means that I’ve got to pull my fingers out (of what you may ask – probably all the cakes and pies!) and start cranking out the poetic goodness for you all!

The prompt that I am exploring today is to write an instructional poem.

Here is the prompt if you too want to play along. – It Begins – Day 1 prompt

My interpretation of the prompt is fast and loose, since this is the first one of the month, so I hope you enjoy it and thanks for reading.

“All Will Be Revealed” by David Ellis

Completely immersed in our dreams until we’re drowning

Experience adventures while your mind is still your own

If you can’t control what’s in your heart, start with your head

It won’t be long before everything you hold dear is subverted


Far be it from me to tell you how to live your best life

It comes as no surprise that memories continue to fade into the night

Live by the code of standing your ground for what you believe is right

Don’t hate the moment when this happens, as it’s the most that you will ever feel alive


What writhes inside our bones are new ways to read the signs

The countdown began from the moment we were born

Buried treasure inside of us each and every day

Truths most profound just waiting to be found


Without thinking or understanding, we’re lost in a sea of unknowns

Choking on an ever-rising tide until it engulfs our very souls

Mistakes teach us to embrace our sensitive human sides

There’s no such thing as time wasted, when navigating doubts deep inside


When in despair or facing fear, remember we’ve been here before

Stare down what haunts you, there is no need to run or hide

Save the tears that you could have cried and feel the fire burning behind your eyes

Leaving behind a world where all will be revealed

One day at a time
