Don't Bother

Rating: 4.0
You can't
keep up
with LIFE.

From the
moment
of birth
LIFE races
past you.

So, don't
bother
'Catching-Up.'

LIFE always
makes
sure it
has a
head-start.

After-all,
IT
IS
LIFE.

And LIFE
was never
intended
to slow
down.

But there's
that other
thing...,
LIFE'S antonym,
it's nemesis
called DEATH.

And as soon
as you think
you're
'Catching-Up, '
DEATH has
its plan.

Moral:
When you
feel you've
finally
caught-up,
you'll wish
you hadn't.
But by then
it's too late.

So,
Don't
bother.
