"Life happens in the instant..."

Life is the flash of light;
gone as soon as you turn

Life is like a dream;
all too soon we awake

Life is like a Memoir;
read once and tossed aside

Life is like a raod trip;
a long and bumpy ride

Life is like candy;
great until it's gone

Life is like the rain;
beatiful and dangerous

Life is like a boat;
sometimes you sink

Life is like a book;
written for you alone

"Life happens in the instant..."

What's your story?

The author's comments:
Everyone everywhere has a story. It may be dull, it may be tragic, but everyone has there own "book" to write. Don't be afraid to set down your pencil and pick up your pen;)

Whoa! I just read "I Am Offended" and I'm shocked the same person wrote both of these. This is excellent!! Try writing more like this.

I loved it! Life truly happens only moment to moment, and I think you really highlighted the importance of living it that way. Great job!

I truly loved this poem, because it's so deep and I think most of us take life for granted.

Excellent job =•)
