Make Life Last

by Gwenyth Hill   Sep 30, 2017

A lot of people are waiting
But do they know what they’re waiting for?
See many people can wait
Spend their whole lives being bored

And I can tell you right now
They wouldn't even know
What they are missing out on
When they refuse to give things a go

See what many refuse to realise
Is just the simple facts
Between what we do and what we don't
That limits our lives and acts

So I urge you to see and experience
All that can be found
Before you no longer can
Before your choices are bound

So will you just sit here
And wait for life to find you
Or will you go out there
And experience life the way you’re meant to

Because time cannot be reversed
What's done is in the past
You can only look to the future
And hope that you can make life last

    Life is all about moving.
    Learning, observing, growing, or if we mix all three means evolving.
    And evolution always wins.
    Last two stanzas, loved it.
