Only Once In One's Lifetime

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

when i die the physique
would be like a country
i had visited, savoured
all its its cultures, tastes,
nooks and corners, foibles,
dos and donts

the physique is
one country one
should experience
to to the full since
one would only visit it
once in a lifetime

then like it is
created specially for us,
its air will be exhaust,
and one would has just
to leave, to give it rest

The analogy you mentioned in this poetry comparing our phisique to a country is quite discernable. Like one's own body every country has its uniqueness and lifestyles, thus we have to experience to the full (as you said) everything possible since we would visit it only once in a lifetime.10 for it.
