Boast not in life,
For it quickly passes.
Boast rather in what you do,
The people you help
The souls you touch.
Dearhearts life is fleeting,
At its end will you look back with regrets?

Nope. But if you know the English translation to that phrase you'll probably get why I titled this piece "Viva la Vita".
