2DAYS

2 DAYS

If you knew you had only one day left to live…

okay let’s be generous and say two…

In the little time you had left…what would you say and do?

 

Would you continue to be the same person 

if you found you only had two days more…

or would you look at the world through clearer eyes than you ever had before?

 

Would your heart be kinder and gentler?

Would you act more impulsive and carefree?

Would you begin to find joy and the beauty in everything you see?

 

Would you discover the inherent dignity, the virtue

the beauty everyone possesses...

the beauty in each skin color or the way each person dresses?

 

When you see two people in love…

would it matter to you if they were gay?

When you see someone kneeling in prayer…

would it matter to which God they pray?

 

If you knew that today or tomorrow would be your final…

your ultimate day…

Would who and what are important come into focus…

while all the other things faded away?

 

I wish everyone has a multitude of days left to live…

with all my heart I do…

But with all my heart I also wish everyone would act…

as if they only had one or two.
