Tasting Life's Offers - Poem by natalie vail

You can be whatever your heart desires.
But how could you get a taste of everything?
We only have one shot at life.
How could we do everything?
What if you wanted to have a taste at being loved?
Or hated?
What if you wanted to have a taste at being rich?
Or poor?
What if you wanted to have a taste at being a celebrity?
Or a nobody?
What if you wanted to have a taste at being cool?
Or being a geek?
What if you wanted to have a taste at knowing everything?
Or being the stupidest, most oblivious person?
What if you wanted to have a taste at having friends?
Or being a loner?
What if you wanted to have a taste at having the world in the palm of your hands?
Or having nothing in your control?
How can you have a taste of everything with so little time?
In heaven do we get to try everything?
Maybe we would understand more things if we tried everything.
