Do You Want It?

Not a recycling bin or a tattoo that can go away, I give you my life.
It is a fun roller coaster that goes up and down.
It promises another day.
Like the sun that sets at six.

Here.
It will guide you with hope.
Like God.
It will make your world a better place.
Someday.
I am trying to be useful.
Not a postcard or a chump.

I give you my life.
It's high tracks will take you to the sky,
grateful and everlasting.
As you are, for as long as you are.

Take it.
It's speed increase at it's highest peak,
if you like. The silence.
It's scent will cling to your mind, cling to your dreams.

"Not a recycling bin or a tattoo that can go away, I give you my life. It is a fun roller coaster that goes up and down. It promises another day. Like the sun sets at six."

I like this line. There are so many times that I feel too fortunate, selfish almost. To live such a great life and to take it for granted like I do. There are people in this world who don't have clothes or a bed to lay on at night. If you made this poem personal, I think it could connect to many more people.

Thankyou! I actually did make it personal. Since you said it, I think it can connect to more people. I never thought of that. Thanks a lot. =)
