Into the Woods

For Henry David Thoreau

1200px-benjamin_d-_maxham_-_henry_david_thoreau_-_restored

Live life deliberately,
Minute by minute
Day by day,
Mindful of every moment
From birth to ultimate decay.

Don’t be distracted
By trivialities, luxuries;
Empty goals for which the desperate strive,
And realize at the graveyard gate
That you were never truly alive.
