Food for thought, to break your trance
Life’s too short; it can be lost in a glance
So indeed we ought, not waste this chance
For life does not, save us the last dance
Live your life!
When death appears, no one gets alerted
We all have fears, of what can’t be averted
We’ve all shed tears, for a dearly departed
None sees or hears, when the grim gets started
Live your life!
So now is truly the time, what you have must suffice
The present is golden and prime; no one gets to live twice
Don’t indulge in crime, or in deeds of evil and vice
For when your end bells chime, you will pay the price
Live your life!
Do not swim in despair when the road gets rough
They say the world’s unfair, so you must be tough
You do not need grey hair, wisdom is always enough
To clear the woeful air, and bestow a hearty laugh
Live your life!
You must rise and shine, like the morning sun
Be glad to be alive and fine, enjoy and have fun
If you can wine and dine, don’t let problems shun
For at the end of life’s line you’ll never get a rerun
Live your life!
So rejoice and sing, and have it your way
Let the joys of spring, grace you everyday
Like a bird take wing, and live for today
Servant or king, all life gets taken away
Live your life!
