What If I Die Tomorrow?

Today, I live.
But who can speak of tomorrow?
What if, I die tomorrow?

Today, I do so many things.
But is this how I want to die?
Should these be my last moments?

Today, I breathe.
But would I rather not really live?
Even if I had one day left?

Today, I worry about tomorrow.
But is there one?
What if, it’s the last one?

Today, I ask myself.
How would you like to go?
Only one reply – writing, writing, writing.

Today, so I write.
But of tomorrow, I know not.
What if, you too die tomorrow?

  1. I liked this.At first I thought it was pessimistic, but found the idea of writing and keep writing as if that would ward off tomorrow. I then sensed the urgency to get things done – quickly – Then at the end I felt the poem relax – let today be the longest day and let tomorrow wait until I am done.
    Good work.

    1. Thank you so much James for offering me your time and wonderful insight! πŸ™‚

      Yes, you are right. The poem is a mix of many emotions – some pessimistic, some born of urgency and some purely optimistic. Isn’t that how life too is? πŸ˜…

  2. Trying to outwit Fate is futile. When you live each day as though it’s the last, who’s to say tomorrow you won’t come up with a better way to use your time?

    Better to follow your advice, Mia, and to let your life’s passion guide each day.

    Truth is, none of us knows the day and time that’s ours. Instead of striving to “end” well, isn’t it better to have lived well? Besides, living well pretty much guarantees the final moment will be memorable, the culmination of a lifetime’s efforts.

    Perceptive thoughts, Mia!

  3. Hey! I came here from Luna’s blog. I’m so glad I did.
    To answer your question, I honestly don’t know. It’s thought-provoking, really. I think I would like to die in the presence of all my loved ones but not so soon.

    1. I’m glad you did. In btw, I remember your presence here before, like a long time back. πŸ™‚

      Making people think was the reason why I wrote this. If you got thinking, half my battle is won! πŸ˜€

      Your way of wanting to go is indeed beautiful. Love is all there actually is. So good choice, dear.
