One life

9cm x 9cm tile

This poem has been one of my favourites since I was 17.

One Life by Walter Rinder

There are countless paths of knowledge
There are many ways to give
There are endless hopes to dream of
There is only one life for us to live

Don't waste your time in sorrow
Jealousy or pain
Pity envy depression
Or things that are the same

Every year that we get older
More often you here people say
I wished I would have, I should have done
I just wasted another day.
