Favorite Quote:
If you don't succeed the first time rewrite the definition for success

Slowly my blood drains
My heart stops
My lungs collapse
Slowly time passes
My thoughts end
My life disappears
In these last thoughts
I think…
Where did time go?
My life is over yet I am not finished
What did I do with time?
I used so much
Yet twice as much was wasted
What have I done?
There is no impact
As I breathe my last
I look out the window
Lifting my hand
I write on the frosted glass
Time is too short
It is not how much you used
That matters
It is how much you wasted
That makes you regret.

I was just thinking about how I have spent my time being alive and thought about the people who don't do anything with their lives and waste it which it what inspired this poem
