21 Lessons For A 21 Year Old

Life teaches you a lot.
When you get in a FIX you lean on FACTS
don't mistake healing medicine for narcotics
When you get PRAISED, let your soul get RAISED
never trade your ego to pessimist lunatics
when things get SLOW, let your energies BLOW
Don't get screwed because you panic

Life denies you a lot.
so PICK the most wanted, but never FREAK angels
those guides may mean to you a shining
you FLAME your little light, but don't BLAME your giant evils
remember your errors have no scientific meaning
EMPLOY your efforts and always DEPLOY your feeling
just style your work, and always smile when freezing

Life betrays always
KEEP your walking stick, DIP your broken limbs
beat the ground when aging massage your own wounds
At times, FILL their pretenses with real love, and you'll always DRILL treasure
but mind your soft head, secrets are protective hoods
Don't STRAY in stranger hearts, never PLAY in gold coated fields
This is how life rhymes always keep in tune!
