NaPoWriMo–N is for…

Not This

A mostly found(ish) poem and rhythmic exploration from Liz Gilbert’s Facebook post


We are in the wrong…

Not this.

Not this.


The problem is

there’s no Plan B…

Not this.


Your body


and soul

are saying no,

not this.


Your deepest life force

won’t be hushed, says no,

not this.


This is all we have,

your brain says; no,

not this.


The moment of realization’s not fun,

but it says,

not this.


I don’t know what life’s supposed to be

but it’s



It’s crazy, insane, imprudent

and yet still it’s nope,

not this.


It might get better,

it might get worse,

but it’s still

not this.


You’re throwing away what’s perfectly good;

matters not,

not this.


You don’t need to know where you’re going

to know that it’s




not this liz gilbert
