Last Day Musings

October 28, 2017

On the Last day of the World,
​When History thus unfurled,
​Would I regret all I'd never be,
​All the Things I'd never see.

Would I walk to my quiet place,
​Quiet grief trickling down my face,
​Would I grieve Things that never were,
​Or happily remember, Things that did occur.

​Would I live that day,
​Recklessly and wild,
And do Things that would have,
​Once left myself beguiled.

Thinking of these thoughts,
​I think of what I'd ought,
To do on the Last day of the World,
​And what I'd ought to not.

Instead of filled with sorrow,
That there would be no tomorrow,
​I'd want to live the day worthwhile,
​And go down with a smile.

    This is a really good poem and it flows nicely. The only stanza that seems a bit off is the second one. Maybe you could change 'things that did occur' to 'things that occurred'. It would flow more nicely and I think it would still rhyme. That's just a suggestion, though. Great work!
