When all this ends,
it will be as though I’ve finally done enough.
My life hasn’t been about anything in particular.
nothing stands out, nothing very notable.
my achievements are goals unattained.
I am not ambitious nor motivated anymore
to acquire more things and such
I never became rich and famous.
I searched my whole life for meaning
and tried to become the real me
I always yearned to find.
I never inhabited this earthly dwelling,
I will have finally become a visitor, here,
passing through this wicked wall.
this must be the way God wants it.
who can argue with God?
I know that whenever I had, I was always on the losing end.
so, shall I say instead, ‘thank you God’ for my life
I wouldn’t have changed a thing?
for, I have learned quite a lot.
this is what I can say with absolute certainty.
and, what I’ve gained in wisdom is the only thing worth its weight
is an ounce of kindness.
and, it is in giving
that it is receiving.
