“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
― Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall

Those who live in vanity,
Please ponder significance.
Bodies, old and young, die
Don't live in arrogance.

Souls shine the brightest
Because legacy is erased.
The light within one
Cannot be replaced.

All one will leave behind
Are the souls that one affects.
Significance is the lives ahead,
Not the life one will forget.

Significance is unfathomable.
Many question why.
Death should be called
An ambiguous goodbye.
