Life isn't always what you want it to be,
But you cannot change what is destiny.
A mere instant can change your life forever,
You may even be bound to a grueling endeavor.
Helpless you'll be in the presence of it,
But much like a puzzle, your pieces will fit.
Don't give up, don't get torn down,
Don't make up excuses, don't let your dreams drown.
Just keep going, be persistent, don't get angry when your poems don't rhyme,
It might sound a bit cheesy but it is worth your time.
And when it comes time to leave for good, I just want to say.
You might not still walk upon this earth,
But the mark you made will stay.
