Ode To Life - Poem by Simon Mack

What we build in a lifetime can be destroyed in a minute,
Watch what you say acknowledge your limit.

Take breath and give pause when a fork in the road nears,
Choose left or right wisely and avoid hindsight tears.

This life comes but once opportunity fleeting,
Embrace what feels right with a smile and warm greeting.

Trust in your instincts and keep your mind clear,
Be open to opinion but don't believe all your hear.

Set yourself goals don't make them dreamed notions,
Specific stepped targets will keep you in motion.

Be polite to all others show respect give warmth,
Draw those good beside you and those not wide berth.

Life is a journey destinations your choice,
A long road that may scar you but keep positive voice.
