One Last Day


Quote of the day:

Ten thousand fools proclaim themselves into obscurity, while one wise man forgets himself into immortality.
-Martin Luther King Jr.


If i had only one day.
Left on this earth.

I would take a long walk.
No short-cuts to make it worthwhile.

I would take time to admire things.
Some i never really noticed.

And remember random stuff.
Like the reflection of the sun in your eyes.

I would watch the waves at sea.
Cover myself with sand up to my knee.

I would watch the sun until it fades.
Until there's nothing left to see.

Just the stars up in the skies.
Spelling out your name with goodbyes.
