Favorite Quote:
yesterday is gone,and today is here, so think about tommorow

We live these lives
These lives that we were given
Day by day
Minute by minute
Sometimes even
Second by second

We're not sure when our days will be spent
Or when our minutes will turn into seconds
Or even when those seconds have all ticked away

We know some have been well spent
And some have been wasted

Some have been sucesses
Others have left us lying on our faces

But they all have passed
We have to move on
Move to the better days
That we hope will last long

But since we don't know
Since we're uncertain
We will live the days left as best as we can
We'll make something out of them
Just as we know we can

Nicely writen. I like how the poem covers all of life. Keep doing a great job.
