Poem About Life And Love

We were put on this planet to live and to love. Open your arms to life, and life will hug you back. This is one of my very first poems. I believe I was 12 when I wrote this poem!

To Live And To Love

©

Published: March 2008

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, we're 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
Glow.
We are who we choose to be,
So be careful who you choose.
Love everyday like there is no
Tomorrow,
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!
