via Daily Prompt: Craft


I am a soul, showcased in a body.

I have been given a name, and am identified with this name.

I perform actions, which is a life game.

But alas, my soul does not seem satisfied,

Each time it takes me on a different ride.

Experiences, it gains, creating different casts,

Filling in vibrant colors in various arts.

It keeps playing different games,

To fit into life’s different frames.

It creates unique pieces, with all my experiences,

Which I cannot fathom using in this world,

But can only take it with me in my final abode,

To decorate and ornate my new home,

With the piece of craft created,

With my memories on it, etched.
