On my Quarter


You Only Live Once (YOLO)
I'm living this life like it's my last
But honestly I've no other to live in the face of this planet
After I bid this world goodbye

I've skimmed through life's pages
Sometimes it's a nice read and at times I get bored
Some stories are just not worth reading yet some are worth a recap
The most exciting chapter 'Puberty' was a bit messed up O_O

Death is an incredible visitor never informing on his visits
Everyone is prepared for it but afraid
I will meet it halfway and whisper 'wait till I'm 3/4 or at least a hundred'
Then I will smile and walk away

I will tell death to wait for...
I have achieved not much on my Quarter
I have not met enough people, not changed as many lives
I'm not yet done reading this book of Life

I'm not in a hurry for heaven...
There's this burden God placed in my heart
I'm yet to give it to those in need of it,
So I shall point out what I did on Earth

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
