I Could Die Today - Poem by Haley Akin

What if I stay in fear?
Saying, 'But, I could die today'
Afraid to live my life
Not allowing come what may

What would really happen
If I stopped chasing all my dreams?
Where would all the future go?
What would life then really mean?

I have to keep on moving
Making progress with this life
Pushing back my fears
I can't let them win this fight

This terror made me stronger
‘Cause now, I hold that fear at bay
I will give each day a meaning
Because... I could die today

I shall mourn the lives of thousands
Each as precious as my own
Living fearless in their honor
Because if I die I'm not alone
