live a little

Enjoy every day
Cherish every breath you take
Listen to what your heart has to say
Learn from every mistake

Fold up the umbrella … feel the cool rain
Tear down that wall that took a lifetime to build
Let go of all of your pain
Warm up that heart that has been for too long chilled

Life is too short to be dark and depressed
Life has a way of working things out
Life is too short to be overwhelmed with stress
Stand up and face the world … show them what you are all about

    No one can argue with this philosophy, James. Sounds like you know how to live a good life. Really enjoy the upbeat nature of the poem, great rhyme scheme and the measured meter. Excellent write! Love, Carolyn
