"Done & Over"

"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength."

"People should be able to say how they feel. How they really feel. Not, you know, some words that some strangers put in their mouth."


WITHOUT A DAY OF REGRET
WITH MOMENTS I WILL NOT FORGET
I REMEMBER WITH ALL I HAVE LEFT
THE THINGS I LOVE THE BEST

MY LIFE IS NEAR THE END
BUT I’M AFRAID I CANNOT MEND
BUT TODAY I FINALLY FEEL OKAY
AS I LIVE IN MY LAST DAY

I may have just been in a cheerful mood when I commented. But what I personally took from the poem was a person who was about to die, looking back on their life peacefully. Sorry to surprise you with unexpected jolliness.

They had been through good and bad times, and they were very peaceful about it. I like that idea. Sorry if I surprised you with unexpected cheerfulness.
