If Not

What is life
if not for
the one who
must live

what are desires
if not for
the one who
must be

what is the mind
if not for
the one who
must dream

I’ve no time
left for charades
or false cures
life is fleeing

and it is mine…

  1. So true!
    No one can lead your life but you, no one can love your life but you, no one can enjoy it but you!
    So go on, lead into the sun or through the rain, love as you’ve never loved before (don’t forget yourself in the process) and enjoy all you can. Life is too short not to!
    Beautiful words Matthew
