A lesson about life


It starts with your birth
From that day on you raise
You get older with each day
You learn with each day
You seize the day

It goes on with your teenage
You try to find out who you are
You shout out your rebel yell
You live the life the way you want to
You seize the day

It goes on with your grown age
From that day on, you teach
You have children
You love, you hate
You seize the day

It ends with death
You give up what you had, to rest
You got older with each day
You shouted out your Rebel Yell
You loved, you hated
You seized the day

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
