Before I am dead!

waking up drenched in  sweat
realizing it’s nothing but a nightmare
I get up to drink a glass of  water
to drown the fear that woke me up!

sins I have done  plenty
I do not know if the good I did is enough
to grant me a passage to  heaven
or worse, born again as human;

never cared for what  people thought,
never worried about those who left,
never a minute I spent  crying over split milk,
what had to
happen, had to happen!

what I was yesterday is  what I am today,
yet people think I have changed, I wonder why!
I take life as it comes
no  expectations and no demands!

with the guillotine  waiting at every step,
uncertainty looms large over tomorrow,
I fear I  need to live every moment
of today before I am dead!

The End
