You have 15 minutes to live, tell your story.
Not long, but a lifetime lost.
Possibilities squandered. The road not taken. So many ways to express loss.
The loss of life is obvious. The loss of hopes and unrealized dreams are costs never considered.
I am leaving behind notes. Story ideas and outlines. Poetry hoarded away from discriminating eyes. Sketches. Lists of programs and supplements.
I spent so long believing the lie that I hadn’t lived long enough to experience the world. I put off my dreams too long. Now they will pass with the dust on the wind.
How many great works were never realized because of those lies?
Don’t believe them.
Stretch your wings. Take flight. Let possibility be your power. Let your soul sing. Leave a legacy not to what might have been, but to what is!
