Life's too Short

Life's too Short

A Poem by Hannah

Life's too short . . .

. . . to dwell in the past.
Don't live in your memories;
make new ones.

. . . to hate anyone.
Hate is wasteful;
you have better things to do.

. . . to stay quiet.
You can't take back the words you never say;
don't wonder "what if".

This is less of a form poem and more of a message poem.

First time reviewing your writing so, hello. :)

On topic: I like this! You wrote simply and straightforwardly, and the message that you aimed to put out came through loud and clear because of that.

I love the lead-in using the title as the first line, and starting off every stanza that followed as a continuation of the first line. It was solid; it worked well.

Good, concise writing, Hannah!

I wonder how many go to the grave with "what if " and " if only " regrets?

Thank you for reading, Mirror.
I bet Methuselah or Moses never uttered the phrase 'Life's too short'.
This recalled a phrase I heard - maybe off a film - "We can get busy living - or get busy dying'

Agreed. Thank you, Pete.
great job Hannah, it was set up very cool, it got the point across, life is too short, we all have a horrible habit of worrying about things we cant control and the things that shouldn't concern us, overall great job Hannah :)
