This life is short

This life is dreary

The hours go by

My mind grows weary.

Thinking of tomorrow

Brings me to tears

This life we live

Is too full with fears.

But too many worries

Won’t do us any good

Life comes with many wonders

Which are often misunderstood.

Think about what makes you happy

The things that make you smile

For this life is too short

To not enjoy it all the while.



This poem was inspired by the everyday worried feeling that we carry with us. The feeling that our lives our so short and vulnerable and there's really nothing that we can do about it. But the fact that we can't do anything about it is why we have to look past that and enjoy this life while we can.
