As promised here is the original poem, the backbone of my Blogathon posts. Remember the beginning is in the first post at 09:00 EST on July 28.

Take the first letter of "Line #" posts (including "Title") to read:


Life

no one asked
to come to this place
but here we are
together
whether by fate
chance or
accident
we arrive
in an illustrious
sea of intrigue
curiosity
grips us
holds fast dreams
of unpredictable
futures
laugh
cry
pain
anger
emotions
bind and guide
their precious cargo
trials and
tribulations
triumphs and
failures
lead
to an end
we all must face
dust returning
to itself
to start again
renewed

questions
now stir
if a purpose
can be found
while we plod
through this life

why must many suffer
where an abundance
can go around

why some kill to kill
hurt to hurt

working together
sustaining our home
creates tomorrow

Heya Jess,
I actually did get my notebook out around 2 or 3am Sunday morning as I was blogging and copied out your coded poem! Your poetry was such a great idea!

And congrats!
