Ten Ways of Spending Time


There are ten ways
to make sure
we give our life meaning;
even at its end:

1. Nurture yourself,
and your garden,

2. Make giving,

3. Know the power of goodbye,
and use it sparingly.

4. Be intimate, be charitable,
but foremost be knowledgeable.

5. Don't collect hate, or lie,
even when it's beneficial
to you.

6. Get yourself out of breath
but never out of respect.

7. Food is fate, and
the physical pleasure
that lasts longest in life.

8. There is no pride of dress

9. When the sun isn't shining

10. Learn all the ways
to say sorry, and know
