Life Is Short Poem by Patricia Grantham

Life Is Short

Rating: 4.9

Live the life you love
Love the life you live
For it is very short
And can never be bought

Life can be good
Or it can be bad
You've gotten many things
You wish you never had

A really nice house
Even a very fine car
Those fancy things in life
Won't get you very far

Life is for enjoyment
Live yours to the fullest
For it is very short
And can never be bought

Striving for big riches
Maybe a waste of time
Make the best of what you have
While you're still in your prime

You've gotten many things
You wish you never had
Life is made for living
Whether it's happy or sad

I like the last stanza that says though our lives may not have turned out like we wanted, we still should live life. And I say it's never too late to bring something of what we've always wanted into our lives, in some form or fashion. I like the short lines of this verse too.
