there are good and bad things in life. suicides, drugs, alchol, sex and even money, but that's the bad stuff. the good things come from the heart like happiness, faith, hope, and especally love.
everyday, people leave this earth and move on into a better place, and everyday babies are born, ready or not, to live the life the dead has lived before. i believe that when someone dies a baby is born and they came to fill the shoes of the person that has passed on. for many years people have tried to answer the question,"why are we here? how have we become? how did we get here? scientifically we have evolved, but according to the Bible, and other religous texts, we have bin made by the hands of God and sent here to earth to be put throught the test of life. life can be very confusing. we don't know whether to live life recklessly of live in discipline all your life. we question God and his existence, wondering what He will do when its our time to be judged. some people wish to leave this world and commit suicide, and there is always someone left behind that doesn't want them to go.
people use drugs and alchol to ease there minds, but in the long run where is it going to get them... nowhere, exactly! life is like a traffic jam, you cannot control it, you have to deal with it, be patient and you'll get through. during this life, everyone has had, has, or will have an obsticle in there way, you just have to look at the problem as a challenge, and look at the challenge from diffrent perstectives. no one, and i repeat no one, in this and age, in this lifetime is completely happy throughout their entire life. you may think i'm wrong but everyone is made up of feelings, confusion, happyness or sadness, waiting to leave the mind, the heart, and even the soul, until we bear another load.
life, a period between life and death, no one in this world knows exactly how long that is. maby its a couple of days, maby its a hundred years, you never know. every human being that steps in to this world will not strive for perfection, but only for excellence, because nothing in this world can ever be perfect. no matter how hard you try, no matter how hard you wish, life is life, and its no more that reasonable. when someoneborn, its like they were given a job, not just any job, a job to live, to see how long you live, how happy your going to be, or how sad your going to be, and when your going to pass on. sometimes the task in your life aren't so good, meaning that you are sad or having a hard time. many people have yet to move on into a better place, but have more comming, but the ones to come have so little time to think to themselves, "which way am i going to go? the righteous way of living or live miserably?" they don't have a choice but to see which life they come across, because as they live, they absorb the life that they are going to live, which may be good are bad. we may realize life and the way it goes, how it works and what you have to do to survive in the biggining of it, or at the end of it but were all oging the same way, aren't we? we must decide how we want to live-- are we in control of life or is life controling us? each of us has a choice. take control and live your life to the fullest is what i say. anything less than that and your being cheated. words are words, but when you read something like this you can't help but to not ignore it. this might be the only warning you get. life is precious, and it only comes once, so don't waste it.

Hi RLE. In the words of Sade. Life. Oh Life. Ohoh Life. Oh Life. Your reflections and thoughts are interesting but I'm wondering about your capitalization. I notice only references to things religious were given capital letters. I felt maybe some of the ideas ran from one sentence into another without a pause. I can only guess that this dis-use of capitals was to create an effect.I'm not sure the effect helps the text though. I agree with your sentiments though, life is precious, in all its forms.

Hey, i know where your coming from. I too want people to realize how preciuos life really is, for you only have one. After that one is up you lose everyinhg and dive striahgt into the unknown. Will we majestically float to heaven or will we perish back to the dirt we came from?

You sound kinda like a philosopher, if so you should study Augustine.
Maybe you can read my essay entitled "Life" and tell me what you think of it. I do agree though that people should live life to the fullest and make it known that they did through the expreicnces that they abtained.

-To know is to have done-
