"Pain is pain. It could be physical or mental, but all in all? Everyone's hurting."


What if death,
Was one breath-
Away?

How would you live,
Through your last day?

Scream to the world
"I love you",
So all may know it's true?

Spend all your money,
Or save it for a miniature you?

Close your eyes in shock
And live your life again,
Longing for one more word to pen?

Smile with your family,
Hide the time from them?

Or do you hold your breath,
Just one more moment?

Do you desperately pull,
Yank at the hourglass
Glued firmly to the table?

Does your mind go blank,
Suddenly unstable?


If death is only,
One breath-
Away?

What do I want to do before I die... How would I handle it if I knew I was going to die soon? Am I going to die soon?
