Why Not?




The wind sighs with heartfelt pain.
Tears are falling across the continents ,
mourning an innovator, mourning a dreamer.
His journey out of the box,
change the world today, why not?
He followed his dreams, his gut.
His words, " stay hungry, stay foolish."
Chasing dreams, making them a reality.
His journey an inspiration to all.

Join Melissa for Six Word Fridays, Today we are doing-why not?

  20. Did you listen to his Stanford speech, incredible. He was a techie but such a dreamer and so human. Interesting combination I hate when I learn more about people once they pass.

  24. Christine, I don't think we want to believe that he is gone...such a bright star..he was a hero to so many.

  25. I love the title of this poem because it is so reflective of Jobs philosophy. He always questioned the dominant theories and asked why can't we do it another way? His presence will be missed. In more ways than we are capable of recognizing.
