Poetry – One Life

One Life


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,

Or wasted.
