Time to Die!
I am using my last minute to tell you this story, so listen carefully, listen before I run out of time
I am with those, within whom the flames of passion still ignite
I was in the tower on 9/11 watching the planes fly inside
I landed on the moon & saw the Earth in a new light
I was Hitler, hell bent on destroying mankind
I walked with Moses through the sea as waters touched the sky
I stood on top of the pyramids so high
I became Jesus turning water into wine
I was Adam searching for my Eve in the beginning of time
A frail old man, I have reached 75. Never been around the world, I lived an inconsequential life.
Today on my deathbed, I lie. With nothing to show, no beauty no sorrow!
As minutes of mortal life pass by, walks in a man with youth & splendor on his side
Sitting by my side, he gives me a knowing smile. Your time is up he says
“I have come to take you to the other side”
As I wait for my soul to depart, and he checks his watch, leans ahead & to me he reminds,
“You have 9 minutes before you die”
I ask him
Why not let me free from this mortal life
He flashes an all knowing smile, as says,
“I have seen your uneventful life.
With no emotions left in disguise
But you are not alone in this world
To feel you haven’t done enough
So a secret today I shall share,
The secret of the 9 minutes you can spare
Everyone who goes beyond
Lives life to its fullest before he dies
Your actions, your deeds, your existence
Has been accounted to 9 minutes of your life.
If each minute was a moment
And each moment was one life
Choose your nine moments in time
Nine moments of Nine lives
And in the 10th minute you shall die”
We live for what we shall one day become, but what if we become nothing yet somehow live forever in time
