'Life... A Lottery'


Do you gamble
when you bet
even your life?

Life is too short
must not waste it
on worthless things!

Love your own self
or at least respect it
give it care and love.

You are priceless
as God created you
in His own likeness.

Life is given free
for us all to savor
its greatness it offers.

Having life to enjoy
is already a lottery won
being alive is utmost joy!
