This Side of Life's Shore

I died today,
I die every day,
     A little bit,
And tomorrow,
I'll die some more,
     I'm sure of it.  

I chose today
     to not think less of myself,
          but think of myself less.*
I chose today
     to be less like me,
          and more like Jesus.**
And I chose today
     to love God more,
          and will continue to
               until there's nothing
                    left of me that can die
                        this side of life's shore.
