Favorite Quote:
"I believe in myself and others, I go deaf to those who hurt me but care for them anyway."
- Rebecca K. J.

Life is a gift.
Life is extraordinary.
You mustn't take it for granted.
Gaze into the eyes of a newborn baby,
What do you see?
What do you feel?
Crystallized baby blue eyes,
Soft, tender pink skin.
Your emotions of anger and sorrow diminish.
Replaced with a feeling of love and happiness.
Life is precious,
Watch a happy elderly couple.
Doesn't it just bring tears to your eyes?
To see them so happy together?
They want to be together forever.
To live forever.
Cherish life close,
For you only get one.
People of all ages,
Young and old,
Gather 'round,
Just to cherish the gift of life.
Life is precious,
So beautiful

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this piece, is that after I had 4 deaths of friends and family members within a 3 month time period, it made me realize how fragile and special life really is. You should never take your life for granted. Live like you're dying, as if there is no tomorrow. That's what I thought about when I wrote this piece. I hope people will read this and realize that life isn't just some present that you receive, use up then can get a new one, because you can't. You only have one life and you should live it well.
