That's Life.

That's Life.

A Poem by Leah Everett

Life has it's downs,

I'm afraid to say,

But don't let it's faults,

Stand in your way. 

Don't cry yourself to sleep,

Every night,

Wasting away, 

In unneeded fright.

Go ahead, phone a friend

Pour out your heart.

But you must bare in mind

They could rip you apart.

Not today, not tomorrow

But it's possible to say

That they could turn right around

And walk right away.

I've seen it happen,

Way more than once.

It's not nice to go through

And darling, it's tough.

And there will be times, 

When you're feeling alone

But to appreciate company,

You must appreciate your own.

It's harder to smile

Than it is to cry.

But in a world like our world,

It's essential to try.

Because this Earth is spinning

On wars, tears and grief

But one less person crying

Is one more step to peace. 

So never wish your life away

For every day is bliss.

Take all the laughter thrown your way

And throw it all back with a kiss. 

Don't watch your past regretting,

Straighten up and stand your ground

Because bullies are just bullies

They will never stick around.

And lovers who don't love

Just want a diamond on their arm.

So take your hand away from theirs

And pretend they've done no harm. 

And I'm not trying to say

That life is just disaster.

It's just not all cuts are small enough

To heal under a plaster.

There is a special someone 

Intended just for you.

And every ray of sunshine

Was intended for you too. 

So be a hero, be a champion

Be a streaker and run wild,

Because this reckless world can't live without

Your God damn gorgeous smile. ;D

^I like that a lot. It's like the silver lining you're destined to find on every rain cloud. Very nice :)
