Prior to my Death

A Poem by obxaco

Prior to my death

I had always felt that I was a pretty good guy

Now faced with my day of judgment

I have been reminded of all of the ugly things 

that I have done in my life

Prior to my death

did I appreciate love, beauty, kindness

did I appreciate time?

Prior to my death

I never felt the need

to hope for a favorable judgment

Prior to my death

I had never considered despair
