When we look back on our life,
We should feel some satisfaction,
If we don't then it is time,
For us to take some action.

It doesn't matter what age we are,
When we do this reflection,
Anytime before we say au revoir,
Is a good time for this recollection.

The time for this task is today,
For tomorrow may never come,
Then at least you could say,
You have really lived and then some.

For all we ever really own,
Is this life of ours,
Do we really want it thrown,
Away in our final hours?

So go out there and make your mark,
On a world that may not know you now,
Show them that you have that spark,
To be unknown you will never allow.

Once this is done you will have begun,
To feel that for which you have an attraction,
You will see that to be set free,
Will give you great satisfaction.
