If you find my body,

It will be deep in the forest,

parts here,

parts there,

torn asunder

by wild animals,

as nature intended.

If you find my body,

know I used it well.

Know that others used it too,

for their own pleasure,

without asking,

without telling,

without thought.

A personal punching bag,

those were the days.

That which doesn’t kill us

makes us stronger.

I am Reardon steel.

If you find my body,

Know I lived a big life

I never ran away from anything,

While the things I ran towards

often crumbled

under the weight of my example.

If you find my body

It’ll remind you,

everything dies

only the persistent

are born again.

Only the persistent

live on.

Live big while you can.
