What would you die for?

“A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.”

**Martin Luther King Jr.

I Die to Let You Go

When you leave,

weary of me,

without a word I shall gently let you go.


From Mt. Yak

in Yongbyon

I shall gather armfuls of azaleas

and scatter them on your way.


Step by step

on the flowers placed before you

tread lightly, softly as you go.


When you leave

weary of me,

though I die, I’ll not let one tear fall.

–Kim Sowol


Dreaming the Future

“Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.”

–James Dean
