Borrowed Time

We are born of borrowed time,
Bodies, heartbeats, and energy
Given by the Earth to use
To live and breathe and love.
Live passionately, for soon enough
Earth will call your time to end.
Breath and heartbeats will cease
And the borrowed materials of your body
Will be returned to the dirt.
Live passionately, and fully,
And to the greatest extent.
Run through meadows.
Watch the ocean shred the moonÂ’s reflection
With wild and mighty waves.
Dedicate your life
To chasing dreams
To loving fiercely
And to living passionately.
