Life Lesson Poem

Not Wasting Time In Life

Our life span on this earth is always too short, even if you live to be one hundred years old. During our years, there are always lessons to be learned. One of the greatest lessons that I've learned is not to put too great a value on the things which can be easily replaced but to cherish the irreplaceable, such as the people we love and time.

The Irreplaceable

If you foolishly spend your money,
you can always earn some more.

If you happen to melt your sundae,
there's plenty more at the store.

If you happen to wreck your bike,
you can get one just alike.

Carelessly drop your candy bar?
The candy store's not very far.

But when you're old and look to the past,
wondering how it went so fast,

You realize all things you waste,
that of time you can never replace.
