What if today was the last day you had?
Would you spend it in quarrell?
Would you spend it in malice?
Would you spend it in fuss?
Would you spend it in vain lusts?
Would you spend it in hatred?
Relating in reasons that are overstated?
Would you spend it in tears?
Would you spend it in fears?
~~~ or ~~~
Would you spend it in love?
Gentle and harmless like a dove.
Wouldn’t you spend it in peace,
Wrapping mercy around others like a warm fleece?
Wouldn’t you spend it with those that matter?
In solace and serenity like a butterfly’s flutter?
Wouldn’t you try to relish the final few moments of your life,
Understanding that its not about envy, lust, greed and strife?
This all is interesting as a great “what if” thought,
Imagine if we actually lived life on purpose,
Dishing out love, peace and joy in surplus,
Then our “what if” would be a “what is”.
All around us would be endless superfluous,
Of all that’s truly important,
Like love, friends, family and grace,
And the beauty of Jesus on everyone’s face.
