Taking Control of Life

There are children playing
People saying
Live everyday as your last
And if you haven't been through something
How do you know about the experiences?
All I know is that we're all changing 
But if you know where you stand, it shouldn't matter
  what obstacles are in the way
As long as you have enough faith to pray
 I've noticed people just let things happen to them
But not everybody learns through experience
It's so sad because we get so many chances
Some people just give up or feel confused
Also they feel misguided and misused
To tell you the truth I was one of those people 
Now I look up to the steeple.

    Faith will move us so much further than just letting life happen. I like how you say that in this. Very well expressed. Michael
