When I die
, I want to be able to say this. That through the course of my life, I've never taken a risk
- even if I failed to succeed in certain endeavors
- that I didn't want to take. When the time comes
for me to lay myself down on the beach
, and for the breath to ease
from my body. Moments before the lazy surf
begins to lap at me, toying with my form as the ocean contemplates
eating my bones, I hope to be able to form those words one last time
I regret nothing.
Or... On the flipside, I'd seriously enjoy screaming it as I was tossed from a moving vehicle, crushed by a meteor, struck by a series of lightning bolts, or impaled by the elongated claw of some maliciously minded demon.
