How's Life Going for you?

A story has a beginning, middle, and end,
Sorta like a person’s life.
When you’re born that’s the beginning of a journey.
First chapter: Beginning
First year: You’re born
Then after a couple of years begins the middle
When you make friends,
and enemies, and see many people.
After getting to know your friends and enemies
Chapter sixteen: Sweet!
Sixteen years old: Sweet Sixteen!
You find that one that you’re looking for.
But it can be an imposter,
So you learn a lesson from that imposter,
It’s not just about being with that person,
And it’s more then just a feeling.
Some people have luck finding that one person,
Some people take longer
But I think they are the luckier ones,
Cause they know about life.
But it’s not my decision on how you should live your life,
You get to choose it how you want to do it.
I know I’m going to live it my way,
Cause it’s my life!
At some point you have found your job,
What do you want to do with your story?
So what will you do with it?
Make a difference in many people’s lives?
Save human lives?
Or just relax and kick back as you do just about nothing with your life?
Then time has passed by and you didn’t notice it,
and soon you’re thirty-nine turning forty.
Chapter forty: The Hill
Forty years old: Over the Hill
At that time you and your lover have started at least one journey for another person,
Beginning their life.
Then before you know it your on your death bed.
Chapter ??: Dying Days
?? years old: Your dying
This brings us to the end of your journey.
Unfortunately everyone goes through this and you can’t stop it,
Cause every story got to end at some point or another.
So try to make your life the best of it,
Cause you may never know if the end of your story is around the corner.
So I have one thing to say:
How’s life going for you?

I had to ask Cesar how old you were again. This sounds like a mature adult writing this. Very deep, Kendric. You should write more. I used to write poetry in high school. This was very good!

Kendric, that was an incredibly expressive poem for someone your age. Dare I say, GENIUS! Of course, I've known that you were a genius for many years. The rest of the world is just finding out.
