If I ever leave this world alive


If I ever leave this world alive
I’d laugh and generate a feast
I’d look at life like an archive
I’d find a reason why I exist
Escape from empty living
Resembling the ghost of the past
Live the day like it’s my last

  1. The first line and the last line have an nice incongruity between them. As I interpret them, only if I can leave the world alive are all the things in the remaining lines possible including being able to live today, before I have left, as if it were my last. Enjoyable.
