A near-death experience inspired this poem. It brought to light my mortality and how death seems to be always there, waiting for me.
This poem was inspired by thoughts I had while staring at a tree one day. With many things going wrong in my life, I admired its stability.
Today represents a chance to enjoy life and move on from bad things that happened in your past. This poem encourages one to look at the bigger picture: how today is a transient state of affairs that we can use to change our lives for the better.
