Life Well Lived

Life qualifies me to be a writer
I have no degree short of a tumultuous
high school
in every sense of the word
I have seen others with the pen
writing out their trials
and triumphs
their battle with the bottle
the needle
the green eyed monster
everyone that was more normal than them
they wrote with blood and ink and tiredness
have you ever seen a life well lived?
Or a life “wasted”
or love or hate or regret
or happiness or profound spiritual awakening
take form
actual form
on a page
