You Have To Pay - Poem by David Darbyshire

When you are young and free,
and the whole world is in front of you.
You do not have time to stop and think,
you just go for it, do what ya got to do.

With no worry at all, you play the game,
the game of life, spin the wheel see what you get.
but spin that wheel carefully,
You might one day, have a regret.

because what you do today,
you pay for later.
As I have heard,
it's ten times over!

So if you think, before you do it,
what ever that might be.
Better Good than Bad, no matter,
you'll get it back later, you'll see.
