By Charles Robert Lindholm 

Someday I will die
and so will you
but here’s what
we should do 

Let’s avoid
and learn
to live in
the Now

We’ll stay
one step
ahead of Someday
in anyway
we can

We will make
this certainty of life
a game of
catch me if you can 

We’ll stretch
out our today’s
and procrastinate
the arrival of Someday 

Someday we will die
but the where and when
and how will remain
an unknown
matter of timing,

if we are lucky
