Live life!

I lived each day like the previous one,
All that changed each day was just the date.
Challenges I wanted none,
I wanted to be ordinary, never great.
In the herd of people I was lost,
I was always a nobody in the world.
It went on that way without me knowing the cost,
When one day the bitter truth was revealed.
Life I realized was too short,
And all these days I had only lived the same day again.
There were things that I had to sort,
I didn’t want what was left of my life to go in vain.
I searched within and tried to find myself,
On a journey of self discovery, tiny steps I began to take.
Life began to get better by itself,
When my own decisions I decided to make.
I found the real spark that inspired me,
Did things that I really wanted to do.
I stopped bothering about how people want me to be,
Because I just had one life and not two.
I now live each day as if it were my last,
I do what I want to do and it makes me good.
There is no point in dwelling in the past,
Live life fully because that is the way you should!

    Too many of us find out life is too short when it is too late, and then we have no time to apply our new found wisdom.

  2. Thank you for the reminder that we should live each day as if it were out last–full of love, positive thoughts and a deep relationship with God.
