We Will Die - Poem by Randy McClave

It is better to make a friend than an enemy
It is better to laugh than it is to cry
It is better to take medicine than a remedy
But who cares, as one day we all will die.

It is better to buy than it is to steal
It is better to tell the truth than to tell a lie
It is better to have desire than a weak will
But then of course, one day we will die.

It is better to stand tall than to walk away
It is better to wave hello than it is goodbye
It is better to be on course than to go astray
But then of course, one day we all will die.

It is better to have faith than immorality
It is better to fail than not to ever try
It is better to live in kindness than in brutality
But then one day, we all will die.

It is better to pray than to make a wish
It is better to inquire than it is to pry
It is better to be generous than to be selfish
But then one day, we all will die.

It is better to create than it is to destroy
It is better to be lost than to lose an eye
It is better to please than it is to annoy
But who cares, as in the end we will die.

It is better to be true than it is to cheat
It is better to confess than it is to deny
It is better to be protect than to mistreat
But then in the end, we all will die.

    Good poem.
    Reminds us to live in the present
    Remember that one day we will die can help us to relativate a lot of things (Report) Reply

    I was moving my head and smiling at the rhyhm as I literarily 'sang' the poem as I read it. Great work. (Report) Reply
