Life - Poem by Colette Wintrow

Life is not a book,
you can't rip out the parts you hate.
Life is not dirt,
you can't wipe it up and start clean.
Life is not a stone,
you can't kick it out of your way.
Life is not written in pencil,
you can't erase it or scratch it out.
Life is not perfect.
Still, that's what makes it worthwhile.
