Life Is About... - Poem by Vickie Felton
Life is not about keeping score.
Life is not about how many people call you,
not about who you’ve dated, are dating, or never dated.
Life is not about whose kissed you,
or which person likes you or not.
Life’s not about what sports you play,
or if your even good at them or not.
As a matter of fact,
life’s not about grades, money or clothes,
not about whether you have friends or if you’re alone.
Life’s also not about you does or doesn’t accept you.
That’s just not what life is about.
Life is about who you love and who you hurt.
Life is about how you feel about yourself.
It’s knowing your beautiful,
know matter what anyone says.
Life is about happiness, compassion, and trust,
and sticking up for what’s right.
Life’s about replacing hatred with love,
and avoiding jealousy,
and overcoming ignorance.
It’s about what you say and what you mean.
Life’s about seeing people for who they are, not what they have
Most of all,
Life’s about choosing to use your life and experiences to touch someone else in a way that could not be achieved otherwise.
That is what life is about.
