Growing up we are told many things,
One being, you can do anything.
But somewhere between child and adult,
Things change and we no longer sing.
Life takes on a whole different meaning,
From what we may have first believed.
We all get so caught up in what life expects,
And forget what we all could achieve.
Whoever told you, you weren't allow,
To follow all of your dreams?
Was it someone who took away your dream,
Or was it you who was afraid of your schemes.
Whatever the reason, I now must ask,
Why not you, don't you think
It's time for you to take control of your life,
So you'll be happy to look back with no regret.
Editors Note - Why not you? Believe and have faith in your
abilities. Always remember that you can achieve what you believe. Within
each one of us is a gift, unique to us. If you have a burning desire, a passion for
something then why not you. Set your goals, take the action, believe even when faced
with problems, you can do it.
Hectic lives never stop,
And we are sucked into the craze.
We go and we go never taking a break,
Life flies by in a haze.
One day we will look back and realize some things,
Like how much we've missed out on.
Holidays, parties, vacations and sports,
We will wonder where life has gone.
So before we find ourselves looking back,
Let's evaluate our life as it is.
Although life is short and we shouldn't over think,
Let's not waste a day with a quiz.
But we can do more relaxing and do less,
To enjoy the pleasures of life.
Think of something you've always wanted to do,
And make the time to just do it.
Editors Note - Life goes so quickly. At the time we don't realize it, but as the years go by and we look back we realize just how quickly time goes by. The Poet expresses the thought of taking time to do less of work and do more of the things that you enjoy. As always it is that balance of life between work and play that will help you have a happy and successful life.
