Favorite Quote:
"The unexamined life is not worth living."

Tomorrow is just beginning
With a sense that I am sinning
So within my anger I grieve
To notice I will retrieve
All I’ve done in the wrong
Unworthy to live this long
For I am wanted no where
So where I sleep will end my years
So may I sleep longer than lived
To fill in the void that I have did

My sleep shall be a rest
And my rest an eternity
For the day I awake
I shall be free.

I thought about how people realize and regret all the wrongdoing they've done when they're close to death.
