Life is the best thing
It can be hard
It can be easy
But yet it is the best
You may think it is the worst
You may think it stinks
But yet it is the best
It can be fun
It can be sad
But yet it is the best

It only comes once

So don’t you waste it

It means something so dearly
to you and me

That is life.

Just because you are having a rough time now.
Doesn’t mean it’s over. It doesn’t mean it won’t get better.

The author's comments:
I allayed love to read poetry and now I am writing it. It all started last year when a one of my friends asked me to write her a poem. At first I did not know what to write nor what about. Then it came to that night when I could not sleep. At it was one then anther came. They just keep coming for about a week I just wrote poems just about one after anther. Then I stopped now I am starting them again. So you may see more then the five you are seeing now.
