Dust If You Must. - Poem by Emma Jane Rae

* i read this poem in a magazine oneday and i liked it so i'd like to share it with you! *

Dust if you must,
but it might be better,
to paint a picture or write a letter,
to bake a cake or plant a seed,
to ponder the gap between want and need,
Dust if you must,
but theres not much time,
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb,
music to hear and books to read,
friends to cherish and life to lead,
Dust if you must,
but the worlds out there,
with sun in your eyes and wind in your hair,
a fluter of snow a show of rain,
this day will NOT come around again,
Dust if you must,
but bare in mind,
old age will come and it mightn't be kind,
and when you go, and go you must,
YOU, yourself will make more dust!
