great poem, this one captivated my attention from the first line. i love the title also. this poem as all of yours do, teaches us a lesson or asks us an important question "whose going to cry when you're gone" i love the line especially that reads..."it isn't what you think of yourself...that matters when you boast, its the praise that comes from others...when you've given life your most" These are words to remember and live by. thanks for sharing, this one is being printed out!
~Live today as though it were your last but prepare for tomorrow as though it were here~
