Time moves on,
Things change,
People get older,
And relationships fall.

Changes are for better,
But sometimes,
They're for worse.

Your only young once,
You only have this one chance to live your life your life to the fullest.

When time moves on,
Make the best of it.
When things change,
Accept it.
As people get older,
Embrace it,
And when a relationship falls,
Catch it.
Hug the good times,
And smile through the bad.

You may not be able to change the past,
So try and make the future better.

Make your life the best it can be.

The author's comments:
Inspiration for this poem came at a very difficult time for me. I was laying in my bed, feeling very depressed at the moment because I had recently lost my closest uncle. My whole family was crushed, and I realized that life is too short to live being sad and dwelling on the bad things in life. I hope that people will take the advice in this poem to their hearts.
