The "Perfect Life"

November 2, 2011

A goody-goody.
Never does wrong.
Never lied, never cried.
Always a smile on the face,
Just to please mom and dad.
Whatever they wanted, I would do.
Always caring what other thought and said.
Always hanging with the “good crowd”
Making sure I stay away from the bad.
Must have all A’s
I do everything I can.
Just to live what is said to be,
The “perfect life”.

Now I say,
You only have one life.
Do I want the fun life?
Or the one everyone thinks is the best.
Great grades, great job,
great decisions, and great overall,
But is that really the life
That would be the best?
I believe you should enjoy.
Try new things, and do what’s wrong.
Do the horrible, do the worst.
Drunk and high, sounds kind of fun.
You will die anyways,
So what’s the worry?
Might as well, make it worth living.
Super fun, super thrilling,
This is,
The “perfect life”.

This is about changing my life around. Deciding that I don't want to follow the societies way of life. I want to have the thrill of doing things I shouldn't. Enjoying life to the fullest.
