(POEM) Your Life

Life is like a song,
So sing it loud and clear
As we move along
What’s important, we keep near

Each turn we take is another chance
And opens up another door
It’s up to us if we get up and dance
Or choose to sit on the floor

As we grow older
We start to see
The world is on our shoulder
And reality is telling us
we are not who we want to be

Each day becomes an effort
And we begin sleeping through our lives
There is so much pain and hurt
Everyone stabbing each other with knives

All others become a bad influence
Your life is now at stake
The key to true repentance
Is what we choose to take

You see, life is what we make it
Nothing more and nothing less
Trust is strong but once you break it
Everything becomes a mess

But what good does it do for us to cry
What good does it do to whine
Everybody lives and everybody has to die
We all go through pain and have a set amount of time

All that we can do, is look to the future with hope
That someday things will all make sense
As time goes on, we will find ways to cope
And the pain will no longer seem so intense

We’ll put on a smile, sing life’s song with love
Hang around for a while
And seek God’s grace from up above

Do your best to make sense
Of everything you’re given
If nothing works out
Hold your head up high, keep living

There will be times when pain is all we feel
The clouds are all we can see
It will seem to be too much for us to deal
But in the end, God will set us free

Open up your mind
And just live for today
Each of us, our paths will wind
As we search and find our way

Near the end of our life
As we walk through our last days
We’ll back look at the things
That helped light our way

We’ll see all the mistakes we made
And the people who were there
The things that may have caused our smiles to fade
And the smell of the cool, fresh air

You’ll think about the people you’ll never know by name
And all of the joy you felt
When someone kept you from going insane
And helped you to live with the hand you’ve been dealt

You’ll remember the sun that always came out
After the passing of the rain
It wouldn’t allow you to doubt
That the joy was worth the pain
