It's never to late, if it weren't for the last minute many things would never get done!


There are many things we want to do,
many things we never get time for.
Life has so many opportunities,
one cannot do it all.
Everyone wishes they could have done more,
but no one does.

So do it now.
Whatever it is,
do it now.
Do not wait for life's too short,
do it now.

Thank you for the feedback! I actually have rewritten this poem with the same idea but more "poem-like" as you put it, however I have not posted it on TeenInk yet.

There are some really strong points that are seen in this. Great way to convey a message! Nice job. I think you should make it a little more poem-like. If you know what I mean. SO that it flows a little better, but still, I love it.!

I know about the word choice. I just had the idea and needed to write it and then without thinking posted it. I didn't even read it over. Gosh, that was stupid of me!
