It is the moment you have.

Growing

Dear Mourners,

In my time of such profound recognition,
I find myself most famous,
The performance of emotion is about me.
The life I lived, has said goodnight,
Before me is the next

I cast my dead eyes into the crowd,
I catch a glimpse of weeping eyes
My laughter fills my dead silence
And my unbeating heart is full of joy
My life's toils, and pain, and tears,
I see be for lived now as theirs

Unknowing, you, did all to show,
The way or not, you hurt or helped

I choose a life of regrets,
Rather than nevers
Because that is a sure way,
I know I learned

Deep. I thought it was the personification of death but I am no longer sure at the end. Can you help (though I don't like explaining my own poetry)? :-)

@Nana Yaw, there is a lot going on here. Truly I'd rather like to hear what you have to say than to tell you what I was thinking.....
