Belles Lettres


Do practical things if you want people to say
"They were practical."
Do what makes sense if you want people to say
"Their life made sense."
Do what the world wants if you want people to say
...
"They were a stand up citizen.
But if you want people to say
"They lived every second they were given
and touched the sky every chance they had,
they burned and blazed in all the colours the eye can see
and left a hole shaped like them in the world
when they left."

Then do something else.
