Why....? (3860 hits)

Like a twinkle in the eye

Life passes us by

So quickly, yet so swiftly

If life is so precious

Then why do we make a mess of it

Indulging the wrong things..

Perceiving 'Living in the Moment'

In a not so gentle way

Are we here on earth to make a difference?

Or are we here for just self-fulfillment?

Death seems like a wakeup call

To make others realize

That life is very short

There are infants that don't get the chance to take their first breath

Or a teenager live to see their 21st birthday

So I say...

Are you here to make a difference?

It doesn't have to be grand

But as long as a step in that direction is made

Why don't you start right now?

Beautifully written... To quote a blog posting I did a while back, "Accepting responsibility to build our communities should begin with you". Thanks for sharing.
