Have you lived a life that’s good?
Have you helped somebody?
Have you chased your dream?
Have you healed?
Have you fallen in love?
Have you rescued a dog?
Have you seen Paris?

For those who answered no, don’t fret.
If you’re reading this right now,
Then you still have the chance.

I hope you take it.

One of John Lennons elementary teachers asked him what he wanted to be in life ie. occupation. He simply stated that he
wanted to be happy. Confused his teacher said "you don't understand the question." Hes stunning remark as a child was
"no, you don't understand the meaning of life." I loved this poem, I know some of your struggles. Good work!

The power of our language can and will change the world.
Successively until our languages become one!
