We have just one life.
We choose what we do with it.
Some fill it with trivia
And some fill it with distraction;
Some with devotion,
Some with exploration,
And some with creation.
Some spend their lives creating wealth
While others offer a helping hand.
Some abuse and exploit.
Some bring happiness and joy
To family, friends and strangers.
Perhaps in the final seconds,
Before this brief period of awareness
Is brought to an end,
There is a period of reflection
In which a person might conclude
Whether those seconds
In this magic interlude
Were well spent,
