Life is not that complicated.

Life is so short and grand, 
to time, we are one grain of sand. 
In our lives we carry around so much pressure, 
this is our one shot, so read this as a refresher. 

Your name will not ring out in history or space, 
one day everything will end, even the human race. 
So why sit down and let another make you cry?
Tell them to kiss you right above your thigh.  

When a person walks past you and smiles, 
mirror it and the chain reaction continues for miles. 
If you see someone uncomfortable and out of place, 
go talk to them, because you will forever be in their grace. 

This life isn't too hard to figure out, 
being nice is what its all about. 
There is so much out there to hurt and make you grieve, 
I'm letting you know its alright to enjoy life, sit back and just breathe. 

10, 20, 30, or 40 years from now on your death bed, 
what are the things that will be going through your head?
If you don't like what you see, not one bit, 
guess what, its not too late, so go ahead and change it.  

I can't tell you what to do, or how to act, 
but everyone can do it, that is a fact. 
Tomorrow when you wake up, do what you see fit, 
remember this and in life, a home run you will hit.

    Hi Chris-I like this.Your logic,common sense and spiritual mind and heart shine through.Some wise words here I agree but sometimes so easy to forget the truth of them,being we are human and fallible.But people like yourself through your creative talent and respect and obvious love of life and others can reach and by your own example teach and I pray you do.Thank you for this.Also congratulations on being featured and please I'd be honoured to add you to my favourites.Thank you. Luv June(Sylvia)
