Poem about Life Struggles

I wrote this poem for my two brothers who were taken from me at the height of their lives. We never know when we will be called home....so just take a moment to see the beauty that is around us.

Young, carefree, innocent,
You sing, laugh and dance,
Taking in all Gods' glory
At every single chance.

Grown up,
You ignore the wonders
That you cherished as a child.
Gone is the carefree, honesty and mild.

You walk around with blinders on,
Into the race of money and greed.
Not caring who gets hurt
Just to fulfill your selfish needs.

Stepping over the line of morals
To have wealth and material things.
Ignoring all God's gifts
Like the first rain in Spring.

Keep that little child inside!
Hold her close to your heart.
We're only here for a brief time,
Then with this world we must part.

For a moment each day it's OK to get silly,
To laugh and dance.
Take in all God's glory
At every single chance.
