This is a poem about life and understanding how valuable and beautiful it is. Enjoy! 🙂
Carpe Diem, Anyone?
“Why me, why me”, you’re crying,
“I wish it just hadn’t been me”.
“I wish I wasn’t here at all”,
“Did not exist, yes, that’s what I want”.
But do you not see what you’re doing?
You’re giving away the golden ticket
To Paradise that you could’ve created,
Utopia that you’ve misplaced within.
Life is a gift, life is a journey;
Life is a race, life is a struggle;
But all in all, life is amazing,
If only you believe it to be true.
So, Live on and dream on,
You might not get another such gifts;
And the one you have is wonderful,
If only you took the time to see it.
What you have is beautiful,
It’s the best story ever to be told;
And it is going to last forever,
By the tender love everyone’s hearts store.
It’s more precious than gold,
Nothing that money can by;
It’s your precious soul,
Not something to be replaced by.
So take in every moment,
And collect them like treasures,
Pile them up along with stars,
Shining like what they truly are.
And if you cry again,
Remember ‘what you are’;
The Pythia said it right,
Knowing yourself is truly an art.
‘Cause if you knew who you really are,
And all you mean to everyone,
And all that you’ve ever done,
You won’t be here crying at all,
But celebrating who you are.
So, Carpe diem, anyone?
