Live As If Your Life Depended On It by Tony Haynes

Live as if your life depended on it

In many ways it does

Figure into an

Equitable equation


Depending on how you look at it

Equality is the quality of

Personal sacrifice blended with persuasion

Equal to an influx is its outcome

Numbered, expanded & amended on it

Doubling the surplus of fulfillingness

So live as if your life depended on it


Or if by chance it ended on it

Nothing more need be instilled


Ultimately your life would be fulfilled
