No Regrets

I'm starring in the mirror, thinking bout the week past

*Sade's husband suffocated in the pile of sand, that truck driver could 've just been patient
then he wont have tripped and emptied the sand in their car, trapping him for 3hours

*Boye's sister, diagnosed with a rare disease, been seeing a specialist for 13months now.
Then she has an attack and the specialist cant be reach for some reason
10 minutes, 20 minutes, he said she tried to fight but poof, just like that, she breathed her last breath

I choose not to continue, cos this is not about the deaths, no...., as i stare in the mirror, one question keeps ringing in my head.

"After all is said and done, did they live the life they always dreamed they would"

I told someone sometime ago,

"I am not afraid to die, my fear is to die and not live the life that i was born to live,
that my friend is my greatest fear"

I want to tell myself...."dont think bout death right now"

But then, someday, one day, we all pass on, we would leave this world and move on
to the world that lies beyond"

I'm starring in the miror and thinking of the past week,

each day, hour, minute, second spent

I'm trying to remember..., did i do what i should have done

or did i do what chance allowed me to do.

Was it another case of *SSDD or was there the fire of passion

burning in the descisions i took and the moves i made.

I'm starring in the mirror and thinking of the past week,

and this time i tell myself,

Whatever you did yesterday, now, yesterday is gone,

But tomorrow..., that is a new page

a new chance, a new reality

to embrace my passions, embrace MY LIFE

to take a step to make it what it should be

and not take it as it comes.

for no money can buy it....the joy of living as i should

no wealth can satisfy, if my dreams die long before i do

Once again, the fire burns, once again, my passions are ignited

To you that have gone on ahead, i can only say, i hope you lived YOUR LIFE
The one you were born to live
