#sol16 March 28 The Slice you Didn’t Write

Slice of LIfe  I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March.  You should do it too!  Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing! 



The Slice You Didn't Write

I'm the slice you didn't write
The moment you 

You couldn't take me in

I'm one you'll 

You skipped 
by me

I'm the slice you didn't notice
I'm the story that doesn't belong to you
I'm the one you can't remember 
I'm the slice you missed 
I'm the slice you didn't write

  1. Lots of those today. I had 3 different things bouncing around in my head today and wrote not one of them. Instead I went to this silly little poem about finally getting a blood test. That needle hurt! Cute piece. Thanks.

  2. I love this…it makes me think about how rushed our lives are and how quickly things pass by and are never noticed. I liked how you wrote it from the point of view of a “slice”– how unique and effective!

  3. This is the slice I’m glad I read. Your poem is creative, and ever so true! As I reach the end of March, I might be more surprised, not by all the slices I wrote, but all the ones I didn’t! This was a creative way to examine that side of slicing. Thank you.

  4. Your poem of slices unwritten reminds me of a wonderful musical theatre song “The Road You Never Take” a much more existential/broader view of decisions and paths untaken in life!

  5. I enjoyed your unwritten slice poem…and it struck me as I just wrote about being flooded by ideas vs. being at a loss for ideas like I expected to be!
