We were put on this planet
To live and to love.
To cherish the ones in our lives.
And never let them get hurt.......
Safety is a priority
But danger is an outcome.
Why is it, that we work so very hard?
For something that will still happen
in the end........
Should we care about our lives,
Or sit and waste it away.
"It doesn't matter, were all going to
die someday!"
These words fill our heads
With sad confusion. There's no end
We get lost with the love
We want to have.
There is no conclusion to all
this pain.
But an answer that comes
Just the same.
The negative side seems to win,
But the positive side seems to
We are who we choose to be,
So be careful who you choose.
Love everyday like there is no
And give to others the joy of life
So no one will hurt.
Love, And love will love you back.
Open your arms to life
And life will hug you back!
Don't be scared!
Life is still a one time thing!
