Poets & Poetry

If today was the last

If today was the last,
Would we still run after: fame, fortune, status, success?
Or would we focus on the now
Spend more meaningful time with our loved ones
Fear less of the unknown
Rise from the flames of failure
Laugh at ourselves
Take things easier
Enrich life with amazing experiences
Help others
Forgive without any expectation
Enjoy the struggles…
What if we celebrated each day as our last?
What an extraordinary experience life would be!
I hope if today was our last
May each of us leave behind a legacy
That builds humanity instead of tearing it down.
