“Life as they say!” by samuellawrentz.

Everybody wants a peaceful life;

Nobody wants to get out of strife!

Everyone wants clean air;

 But people who plant trees are very rare!

People want to be loved;

But fail to embrace when it’s bestowed!

We are mere mortals who live in constant fear,

Losing the ones that are dear!

We run behind money;

Memories that we have lost are so many!

People say they would stay;

But one day you would watch them go away!

When you die, you take nothing;

So everyday, make people happy with something!
