For today's prompt, I want you to take the phrase "So we decided to (blank)" and fill in the blank. Make that your title and write a poem. Some possibilities include "So we decided to plant a tree" or "So we decided to burn a hole in the sky."
So We Decided To Keep On Living
So we decided to keep on living,
me, myself and I.
Much too soon to stop from giving
up, rolling over to die.
So we decided to try once more,
to rise another day.
Looking at life different from before,
seeing it in a new way.
So we decided to keep on going,
one more chance,
for all my selves just knowing
to continue with the dance.
