it’s time

today’s a day
when we remember,
and in that remembering,
we’re put squarely
in touch,
in touch,
with our own

we know
we’re all gonna’
not a single one of us
is exempt.


we know
we’re gonna’ die,
but we do not know
or where
or (regardless
of circumstances)


if you’re reading
you’re alive.
you haven’t died,
though your clock
is ticking.


so, scoot.
get on out there
and live –
really live,
treating us all
to your very own
gorgeous genius
and genuine glory.


and hey,
while you’re at it,
why not stop,
every chance
you get,
and notice,
pay tribute to
somebody else’s
they shine,
you shine,
we all shine,
even though
we might never
know why
or who to thank.

    This is awesome, and also, it made me realize that I’m glad I don’t know when my time is going to be up. 🙂
