My Last Five Minutes - Poem by Devin Rai
The last five minutes, I dread,
Will I have any regrets?
They say, you see your whole life,
What will I see? My mistakes? Success? Kids? Wife?
And, what if, I only see the stuff I didn't do?
brawl? Drugs? Cheat? Study? Tattoo?
Am I living my life the 'right' way?
I know it's a cliche,
But still, I just want to be satisfied when I see the action replay.
What do I do? Watch TV, movies, Listen to metal!
Oh, I think my life is going to be regretful.
What did I leave behind?
Money? Property? Kids? This unreal shit in this state of my mind?
What am I supposed to say to God?
That I wasted the gift he gave me? That I'm a fraud?
When God closes my file,
In spite of extravagance of my life style,
I want to leave the world with a smile,
So, here and now,
I take this vow,
A vow never to be broken,
A vow never to be forsaken
By the time, my life will have run its course,
People around me will be happy, and I'll be its source.
When I'm free,
When my sun has set,
When my soul is released forever,
I'll have no regrets,
No more lost endeavors
No more things not done.
According to me, knowing that people around are happy because of you is the best form of happiness you can have. You can travel the world, spend buttload of money but it won't compare to the happiness you get when you see people close to smile because of you.
