Unfinished business

What time do you have left
And how will you use it
What will you say
If the great accountant weilds his scythe tomorrow?

What will you miss
What haven't you done?
If given the chance to return -
What will you do first?

How much longer will you wait for happiness to find you
While it is only hiding behind the next door?
Can you find it in yourself
to turn the handle and step through?
What is the threshold made of that holds you back?

When life slaps you in the face,
Its so easy to turn the other cheek
And return to your routine

Get some balls
Grow a spine
Act on your instincts
show strength this time
Jump in the icy water -
without care for consequence.
