Student’s Good Work> Anthology of English essays - If I had 7days left living in the world
Lei Ho Fung Michael 4Ba (28)
Time for everyone living in the world is limited. Although some live longer, some live shorter, every life will end someday. If I had 7 days left living in the world, I would thank people I know by letters. I would like to know how they think of me, I would also do something I have never done before for my family.
If I have 7 days left, I would thank my parents, all my friends and teachers. I would write letters to my parents, thanking them for taking care of me for 15 years, giving me a warm family life and forgiving me for every mistake I have made. I would write to my friends, thanking them for having fun with me, listening to and sharing my feelings with me, comforting me when I feel sorrowful and giving me a gregarious life. I would write to my teachers, thanking them for teaching me knowledge, giving me opportunities on different activities to learn, answering my doubts and caring for me. I have never thanked them for the reasons above, for it is hard to say it in Chinese culture; and that is why I have to push myself to do so.
It is also hard to know how others think of me, but I always want to know because I am not actually confident deep down. It seems that I always do things wrong and make others angry. They never tell me but I just feel it and do not know what to do. Are they really angry at me? I am never brave enough to ask, but if I have 7 days left living in the world, I would tell them I do not do this intentionally and ask them for forgiveness. I hope I would be comforted and more confident in these reminding 7 days.
I always want to do things for my family but have no time. If I have 7 days left, I would cook dinner for my family, talk to them, enjoy our last moments and show my care as well as my love for them.
However, this is not what I actually wish for. After thinking of this, after writing this, I realize time for everyone is limited. It may be shorter than what we would imagine. I should value my time in school, time with friends, and of course the time I spend with my family. We keep not only our physical body, but also our hearts close together. We should show our care in these last 7 days living in the world.
Finally, if the 7th day came, I would lay myself on the beach, wait for death to come when listening to music and pass away comfortably, without regrets.
