It’s been years since I last read my poetry aloud for an audience. I can’t remember the precise date or time (that’s how long it’s been). Sharing my words this past Saturday was slightly nerve-wrecking but mostly cathartic. I’m thankful that this moment was captured on video and after some contemplation, I’ve decided to share this video online with my readers here and also on YouTube (as an accomplishment of one of my “list for 30” goals).
In reflecting on what I knew about my father’s life and insights, I realize more and more that life is meant to be lived and lived fearlessly to the fullest. We never know when a day could be our last or when moments with another will be no more so we should love hard, live boldly and go after what we want out of life.
Here’s my reading of a poem I wrote for my dad. Feel free to watch and subscribe to my channel as this video won’t be my last:
