We don’t have Forever

Poetry. Beauty. Romance. Love. These are what we stay alive for.

The stars aren’t just balls of gas burning billions of miles away

They are also a reminder of the brief tiny share on this planet

Beautiful things don’t ask for attention

What if I were smiling

And running into your arms

It’s not all about me

And even though I’m in pain

It’s worth

sticking around to maybe

make my

little corner of the world a slightly better place

Words and ideas can change the world

You are not God

you’re only human

Humanity the choice we make

The path we choose

I always believed it would take a lifetime to understand the human heart

In the end

All it took

Was a single day.

Life is a gift. We must celebrate it

We have to dance, to show God, we are grateful to be alive

Because my vision is closer to the reality of the world I can make people feel what it’s like

to be alive

Everyone we need

Everyone we love

How we got here

What path we choose

And who we choose to remember

Soldiers in the name of democracy, let us all unite

We’re all a part of our story

But we cannot allow the story to be written for us

Because we don’t have forever


All we have is a single day

But to die is to be human

And anything human is mentionable anything mentionable is manageable

Anything mentionable is manageable.

I said it before and I’ll say it again

life moves pretty fast

You don’t stop and look around once in a while. You could miss it
