<font face="Arial, Arial, Verdana" color="#871f78" size="2">Our lives are short, why do we waste
The minutes ticking by?
On hateful thoughts and ugly things,
That rob us of our time.
Animosity and cruelty,
Blacken out our skies.
They taint our hearts and ruin a soul,
Causing other ones to cry.
Enjoy your life just as it is,
Be grateful for what you have.
Love fully from the core of you,
Each day as if your last,
The things you find with in your reach,
Are not things from your past.
Today is all we really have,
Live it as you must.
Tomorrow may just never come,
Who will be the sorry one?

Nicely done, the reader said
I like the way it flows.
It goes so well, I hardly could
Believe it wasn't prose

And I agree whole heartedly
With the message that you give
Of pure and wonderous lifestyles
That so few of us do live.

Sorry about that---^
sometimes I do these things...

Great advice, my friend!  This says so much with very little words.  Keep it up, I would personally like to see more here!

 My advice in life is; talk to yourself, you never know what you'll learn.
