Life worth living

Life worth living

A Poem by Edward Lancheister
"

life and living

"
Open my eyes at the start of the day
One bold step and I’m off on my journey
Sunshine and lights upon my skin
I can feel the warm embrace within

People pass by, they meet and greet
Sharing in conversation & spirit 
Each day holds a great vision to claim
Yes, today is a beautiful day, I say
So let nothing be wasted or vain

The sun and moon, they rise and set
Silver stars shimmer across the dark sky
Courage and faith are the center of hope
Make troubles vanish like a fire’s smoke  

There’s certain to be battle, a war to be won
No day leaves time to surrender
Pain brings strength, sorrow brings love
And charity brings joy- the greatest gift ever

Life’s too short to be taken for granted
Or wasted without hesitation or thought
Wish not for its ending for this is just beginning 
Take a bold step into your journey
With me.

Many people like this poem. People are seeking encouragement in a depressing world. I like this stanza the best:
"There’s certain to be battle, a war to be won
No day leaves time to surrender
Pain brings strength, sorrow brings love
And charity brings joy- the greatest gift ever"

Very good insight, Edward, about life's push and pull, tug of war.

Your welcome :-)
My favorite lines were,
" Life’s too short to be taken for granted
Or wasted without hesitation or thought
Wish not for its ending for this is just beginning
Take a bold step into your journey
With me."

It's so true, and couldn't be any clearer.
Keep up the inspiration!

Always,
Makayla.

I love how positive this is. I can never seem to write about positive things, so I revel in it when other people are able to. Beautiful work.

So true! although for me it can be hard to always be optimistic or take risks. I greatly appreciate motivation especially in the creative form. I loved the structure and the rhymes, gives it a lyrical feel
