" Life's To Short "

“Life’s To Short”

Have you ever heard the saying: Life’s to short?
Well it means you don’t have time to waste, 
You only have time to spend,
The world’s coming to an end and no one knows when…
You better spend all your time with your family,
Life’s To Short,
People are mourning, over people that’s dieing,
Life’s To Short,
When you read the news paper, or even look at the news,
All you see is people getting killed,
The world’s coming to an end and no one knows when,
Life’s To Short,

Stop wasting your time on drug’s, and sex,
Spend time with your family the one’s who really LOVE you,
Life’s To Short,
Stop getting locked up,
Stop having sex, with everybody you see,
Stop being a hypocrite, 
Live life with your family,
You don’t have time to waste,
The world’s coming to an end, and no one knows when,
Life’s To Short,

What part don’t you understand?
Live life with your family,
Do what God say’s,
Life’s To Short: 
To be hustlin’,
Kill’n folks,
Going to jail,
Instead live life positive,
Live life with your family, the one’s who really love you,

                                   ***dedicated to the world***
my friend got put in prison for being with the wrong people at the wrong time and now he   
has to serve 15 to 20 years in there for murder and he didn’t even commit the crime…That’s 
what inspired me to write this poem…So please take this and use it…

                                                                            Sincerely: Dodie

    I can relate to this.I have a step son that was validictorion of his graduating class.Very smart kid.He was at the wrong place at the wrong time and saw a kid get beat up.never said a word or laid a hand on the kid.Now he is in prison for 13yrs,just for standing there.Yes life is surely to short.

    This time on earth is limited even if we live to be a 120 that is still a short time. If we could make it minute count for good. Keep writing. Sara

    This hits home with me, I have a Son in a group home we moved to a new town, I did no know it was full of gangs, it stinks how they take the soul out of these young kids, I hate them, but you are right, life is too short, also choices when you are youn, like smoking changes the course of your life also. Strong meaning, good message. Keep writting. Judy Riley
