The world won’t stop turning,
even as land lights up in flames
and stars flicker and burn out.
Life goes on, and time will keep ticking
until time is no more. Celebrate each
day as if it were your last, and be the
person you’d want to be remembered.
Make your impression on the world.
Tattoo the town you call home,
light the sky with a temporary fire,
a split-second sparkle because the
smoke will linger long enough to form
lifetime memories. Moments make magic.
Just enough to make time freeze, if only
for a heartbeat or a heartbreak.
Still, the world keeps turning,
giving rhythm to life and purpose for you
to keep the spring in your step.
Until your last breath stops your
world from turning. Only for a mere
moment, then rejoice in a new life
far less dizzying in its rhythm.
