If I must be here,

Let me make the most of this position.

If I must be me,

Let me stand apart as one of a kind.

If I must live life,

Let me distill moments to ultimate good.

If I must die death,

Let me spend my final day in love and peace.




About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.
