Life

March 23, 2008
By Margaret Tolson, Fairfax, VA

Life is not a fairy tale,

it's nowhere close to that.

For when you live you die inside,

and that is such a drat.

I never knew what life was like,

till I saw the truth.

You grow right up and touch the sky,

then fall back in goop.

Your body disappoints you,

it gives right up and fails.

But you'll never know what's coming,

until you've lived it well.
