Pascal's Wager. It's too long to put here but if you don't know it, I highly recommend that you look it up.


How much longer do we have to live?
100 years?
1,200 months?
Did we make a difference?
Was it honestly enough?

How much longer do we have to live?
4,800 weeks?
36,500 days?
When you speak like this,
It doesn't seem like much.

How much longer do we have to live?
876,000 hours?
52,560,000 minutes?
Did you live for every moment?
Or did you let one slip away?

How much longer do we have to live?
Do we really know?
In the end does it even matter?
When we look back at our life,
Will we be sadder or gladder?

How much longer do we have to live?
In our hearts I think we know,
We could live 3,153,600,000 seconds more,
Or we could live just simply one.


The author's comments:
This poem is all about how, in reality, no one knows how long they have on this Earth. People spend all their time doing things that are pointless and not enough time doing things that actually make a difference.

If you died today, would your life make a difference or not?
