Life.

Death should not come easily
It shouldn't be decided
By those who deem better
Than you,
Life should be lived
Freely and unconditionally 
Like love,
Sweet and wholesome 
The journey of life,
Starts before you're born
And the destination of life
Doesn't end at death,
It goes on forever
And forever it will go on,
Believe it or don't
Want it or don't 
But please, I beg,
See and smile
Because life is slowly stopping,
At least just for a while

This is a truly beautiful poem. I love how positive it is and I love the part at the beginning talking about how you should live your life by what you want to do not how others want you too. this is very good! `"" Thumbs up!
