Life's whatever you make it

Life can be more than you could ever ask
Or getting up and living can seem like a hard task
You can become anything
Or nothing

You can be happy that you wake up every morning
Or angry that someone broke your deep sleep
Friends and love could mean it all to you
Or it could mean nothing more to you than a speck of dust

Depression can be just another word
And it can also be the death of you
Lifes like a blank sheet of paper
You can write your own story...anwyay you want too

I love the poems that come to you in 3 minutes-- sometimes they're the best. Like this one, it's pretty good. :)

I like this a lot - especially the first 2 lines of the 2nd verse, they're a good representation of how certain people live their lives :) However, I think the poem could be a little more fluid.
