Immortality: How Would It Be?....A NiaG Poem

Updated on March 4, 2012

If you had immortality what would you do

Would you soon become tired of tying your shoe

Become burned out on the day to day crunch

Sick of eating the same unsurprising lunch

Watching people as they come and go through the door

Saddened by those that won’t come back any more

Is it worth the illusion that it’s cracked up to be

Why weren’t you happy with aging naturally

Perhaps it’s worth all everyone boasts

You see the world, and give lots of toasts

Celebrating life as it comes another year

Isn’t it wonderful, how special, how queer

You’ve lasted these days and will have plenty more

Watching the curious change of people going through the door

This fantastical way of life given to you

Now gives you enough time to see and do all that is new

If you'd like to hear my reading of the poem instead, play the video below. There is no video attached, only audio.

      Great Poem. Funny how people think they'd get bored with living forever but none can pick out what day they'd like to die. I'm all about living forever as it is my personal goal. Smile!

      Thanks tsmog! No I've not entered yet. Like you, I need to make some time for it. I just came back from vacationing in Mexico last week. I need to add a few more tips on my site. :-) Thanks again! Have an excellent day!

      Nice! Have you entered the contest yet? I hope to tomorrow when I have some time. Awesome! I think I might spend a moment or two at too! I need a vacation next year, away from here - LOL. I will be looking for some tips! Remember to smile (like anyone has to tell you that) and have fun, fun, fun, , ,
