Living

Living

A Poem by mae23

A second of happiness,

Leads to a lifetime of smiles.


A minute of failure,

Leads to a lifetime of regret.


A whispered apology,

Leads to a lifetime of forgiveness.


A flash of anger,

Leads to a lifetime of caring.


A moment of taking action,

Leads to a lifetime of memories.


Enjoy, Accept, Remember 

every 

Second, Minute, Whisper, Flash, Moment.


Just never forget to Live.

Short but meaningful and hopeful. It's really amazing how some little things can turn into the greatest things in life. I specially love the last line. :D What I always remind myself whatever comes to me.

So well and nicely put. It is good that you remind us of the true meaning of life. There is so much good to take into account in our lives.

Take care - Dave

Thank you for the review
Simple, deep and true. It's one of those short poems which hit you hard when you read them as they capture the meaningful parable of human existence. Love it

I am not entirely sure this I connected with this on any level except to say it reminded me of a soliloquy from Fight Club or perhaps Trainspotting.
