Oh that I would have died –
For the longest while I have tried.
The first step is to have been born
The next is to cast off the life you’ve worn.
So many ways to go –
Some in peace, some in woe.
Some in anger, some in haste –
though those, I think, are a waste.
Make a splash in life, not when you die –
Leave them wanting more, not asking why.
Have a really great impact.
And leave yourself mostly intact.
