I Love the quintessential message of this poem. Take advantage of every breathing moment you have and try and live the most beautiful life possible. One that you'll be delighted with.

I have also been wearing ALOT of black the past few weeks and I am not the only one, it's become New York's uniform in a sense, everywhere I go I see people outfitted in all black and I must say, you can NEVER go wrong with black and just a pop of color ;)
