I've been thinking since this summer,
that although death is certain, and inevitable, 'life' is not.
And like the poet says,

'When Death Comes...'

... When it's over, I don't want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.

I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.

I don't want to end up simply having visited this world"

I've been thinking about it too Xeb, about 'life'.

I feel that I can live my life just like everyone else; get a good degree, a nice job, beautiful wife, loving kids, etc etc.

Or I can go out there and make a difference by doing something that will change and affect people in meaningful ways.

The only problem is choosing between the two.

I feel that if your life revolves around you, and only you, without having any worthwile affect on anyone then it was just meaningless.

'To cause a ripple in water is to live, but to keep it in motion forever is life'
