THROUGH OUR LIFE

Through our life, we are the same

We face the fear of love and pain

We carry guilt of hate and shame

With nobody there for us to blame

We wonder through this unknown land

With no one there to take our hand

But hope someone is out there

Who cares enough to understand

If you look how long we are on this earth

Until your time ends and right from birth

It’s not the length of time you’re here

Not even what you’ve done

It’s the length of time that you have left

So you can carry on

Living your life as you were meant to do

Having your family and loving them too

Life is too precious to let moments go by

Why should we sit and just wait to die

Grab your dreams and hold them tight

Don’t let them drift off away in the night

Life is for living,you only live once
