“YOLO”

You only live once.
Achieve your dreams.
Cherish the ones you love.
Make omens to heal.
Plan vacations that you WILL take, no matter how extravagant.
Hold on to family roots.
Break down doubt.
Mend broken promises.
Follow your spirit.
You only live once, so live.

I hear whistling and the vinyl snap of the shower curtain being flung open, and then the slap of wet feet hitting the linoleum floor. He must have shoved the bathmat against the door again.
