“This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us”…

This was your life…
So what have you done…
Are you filled with pride…
Or had it only just begun…

Do you look backwards…
In wonder and in awe…
Or was it all wasted…
Like so many before…

Did you rule the world…
Make it a better place…
Or did you quietly hide…
Always seeking an escape…

Escape from your misery…
Never appreciating the good…
A crime we’re all guilty of…
Even the best of us should…

Take the time more often…
To look outside our mind…
The Stars and the Sunset…
All free and all sublime…

Yet taken for granted…
And we just internalise…
As life passes so swiftly…
Before we’ve even realised…

And we get to this point…
Wondering what we’ve done…
Just what is our legacy…
What battles have we won…

The hearts we have broken…
And souls we have scarred…
Those long since forgotten…
The loved ones we discard…

Who’s left at this point…
Anyone who still cares…
Who stuck by you all this time…
You’re surprised they’re still there…

After the way you treated them…
Because it wasn’t always good…
You could be such a Bastard…
And regret acting like a fool…

Because this was your life…
This is what you’ve become…
And it wasn’t a rehearsal…
You had one chance, only one…
