Only One Life

Only one life

That’s all we get

or so we’re told

one life

just one life to become accomplished

one life to learn to live

Some of us will get one score

or four

or more

some may get an entire century to figure it all out

the irony is that we may end up

without a soul to share our findings

One life is all we will get

to prepare for the life after

some use up every minute

planning for death

Just one life

that all we’ll have

to love unconditionally

or to hate someone or something

with passion

Just one life

is what we’ll have

to make memories for others

to remember us.

Just one life

ONE! That’s it!

Live it well.
