Until the day I die

as I stare into the emptiness
of what has become my soul
I wonder what life has to offer
have I reached my final goal

as I reflect on my life choices
will I find there is regret
have I taken every opportunity
to pay my societal debt

as I ponder what the future holds
is it full of hope or despair
can I escape what's already written
is there any reason I should care

as I contemplate big decisions
can I find purpose to carry on
will I continue to live in darkness
sparks of light and hope are gone

as I resign to the obvious facts
life is quickly passing me by
I'll continue to do my best
until the day I die
