The Coin of Life

by Michelle Maynard Koenig

There’s so much to observe, experience, and see
amid the vast Universe of diverse land, people and sea.

When I open my mind, respecting it all,
the horizons of my existence expands wide and tall.

In my possession is a coin of life only I can spend.
Determining the path of my journey’s stipend.

How I spend my coin can result is sadness, joy,
chaos, bliss, truth, or even manipulative ploys.

It’s up to me to get to living or get to dying,
time waits for no one, time’s momentum is flying.

The choice is mine, and only mine to make,
regardless if the time I have remaining is years or only today.
