How Was Your Life?

As James Dean said “Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.”
Life is a stage and you can act in so many ways.
You make your fortune, you pray for luck, and you work hard to make a buck.
The hour is coming, death is almost here, did you live your life full of happiness and cheer?

Did you stand center stage and light up the room?
Did you dance with fate across the moon?

Did you stare into someone’s eyes and love with all your heart?
Did you fight to find your way even when it was dark?

Did you conform to society’s rules?
Or, did you live your life the way you wanted to?

Death is coming I can hear him now;
What were your dreams anyhow?
Did you achieve them?
Did you fight with all your might to see them come true?
Or did you pass through life like a shadow- all sullen and blue?
