One Week Left - Poem by Jennifer Sol

With one week left to live what would you do?
Waste your precious time lazing on the couch
A bag of potato chips as your only friend
Maybe, you would throw a party, get drunk
Spend your night throwing up with old friends
Or possibly you’ll crawl into bed with a stranger
A different one every night, waste your money
For a simple moment of pleasure
Or you might take part in every extreme sport
Base jumping, sky diving, skateboarding, BMX
A week of thrills before you die
Or perhaps you will say all the words you left unsaid
Finish anything you wanted to but never did
Again, I ask you…
With one week left to live what would YOU do?
