on my mortality

well it's another new year,

haven't got caught up yet.

still remembering those we lost last year.

lost a couple of friends, around Christmas time.

one younger, one older than me.

it reminds me of my mortal life.

my expiration date,

my mind can't grasp the fact that one day it will be me.

i love my animal furbabies, my family, well what's left of it.

i love to learn new things, to read,

to watch new programs.

to meet new friends, to see pictures of places, i will never go to.

i love to feel the new day, even when i'm in pain.

my illness reminds me, i'm alive!

i love to decorate cakes, my job is sometimes stressfull,

but without it, what would i do?

i lost more than two people already.

my faith reminds me that we go on.

but missing life is a hard thing.

people go on, life keeps moving forward.

i'll become a memory to some.

i'll become the past. lucy 1/5/2017

    Everytime I lose a close family member, I can’t help but think of my own mortality. I lost my mother 11 years ago, and I still think heavily on it. I lost an aunt a month ago and its really depressing. Makes me think also of all the things I’d like to do, but put off. No time like the present, really.

        I can understand that. 11 years later and I can still be moved to tears very easily.
