If you are philosophical or reflective at all this offers you very little. Even at that maybe I would have rated it higher if I had not found out about the author's tendency to be a copyright troll. When a middle school class wants to use your poem to read in class and discuss, you should just let them. In fact, a "wise" author would be encouraging such a thing. As opposed to threatening lawsuits and demanding a cash payout.

Sometimes it is useful to know the background of people trying to give

This was a short but amazing book.

In the period of about 10 minutes it has the power to make you stop and re-evaluate your entire life, what you hold important, what your priorities are, what you have done and haven't done, what you would like to do, and what the dash is all about.

I'm right in there with them and all of those who have been moved by this short, but meaningful composition.

Very good poem; really makes you think...all we have on this earth is that one dash, the thing that separates our date of birth from our date of death. And really, that's how fast time flies...in a dash, so we should learn to value every moment of our lives because in that space of a dash, it will be over. Also, there are very good photographs that accompany the poem.
