Prompt: Seize the day

Carpe This

Seize the Day!

Whaaa…? Like a
Merry commandant with a
Merry band of
Merry followers.

Carpe Diem!
Carpe this.

Enjoy the day.
Cherish it.
Fill it with things you live for and love.

Don’t fill it with what others tell you to do.

Get out of comfortable.
Get out of routine.
Get out of your own mind.

Go take to the hills if you have them.
Go kiss that girl you’ve been eyeing.
Go hug a stranger.
Go tell off your boss.
Go quit your job.
Go live in Timbuktu, or Katmandu, or Waterloo.
(Go misuse a word or two, too.)

But.

Be true to yourself,
Not the merry commandant.

Seize the day…
Make it your own.

Follow your heart,
Not
Some
Dead
Poets.
