Festina lente

April is National Poetry Month, and here is my humble contribution.

What if there is no tomorrow
the mere thought brings me sorrow

Where did I lose all the years
they were a blur of cheers and tears

In search of glory, did I cross any boundary
Did I gain success, or did I just regress
Did I make a difference or did I lose my balance
Was I selfish and caused someone anguish
These questions haunt me day and night

I hope I am there tomorrow
Now I have two mottoes
Festina lente
Carpe diem!
