Life,

Fragile in everyway,

Short but special,

Delicate and unpredictable.

A gift of love,

A privilege that can be taken away.

Previous and small,

Exciting,

Happy,

Miserable,

Challenging,

Hard,

Unfair,

Scary,

And remarkable.

A short hallway for each person,

Starting from the dawn of time,

To the end of the world.

It’s what makes flowers bloom in the spring,

And the leaves fall in autumn.

It’s the reason why there are such things as love, and hate,

Life may be tough,

Despicable,

And unjust.

But it is full of strength,

Bravery,

Wisdom,

And success,

Perfect or completely wrong.

Touching or not.

Some are good,

And some aren’t.

Life is good, sweet, and fun.

Forever or not, it’s all worth it when it’s done.
