Some are unhappy with living
And can only see strife
They may be taking too seriously
The way they live life.

Maybe we live life over and over
Maybe there is a Heaven and Hell,
Whatever the case if any,
In order to live it in clover.

You must first learn to live it well.
Life is tenuous and carries
The baggage of sorrow,
It is best not taken too seriously
You may not have tomorrow.

Meanwhile, living today;
Lighten up…look for the
Humor and take in a
Fresh breath of air.

Enjoy the beauty around you.
Have some fun and its
Best not to sell yourself
The lie it’s unfair.

Continue with the things
In life you think important.
Try never to be a dick
Or houseplant.

And if you must, work like hell
But take the time for
Some happiness as well.

Life is like a dime bag of pot;
It won’t be around long.

Having Fun
I agree with you 100%. We should live our life to the fullest, God don't want us to be like zombies. Even Christians can have fun! but in a respectful way.

never be a dick

I start to read your poem and feel this very cleansing flow...and I am really digging it because you simplify many things that we as humans tend to complicate. Then I get to the 6th stanza and start cracking up because of your choice in words is like a shocking reality but true-and to put the icing on the cake the last stanza also blows my mind-with the dime bag and all.

Good Advice
Good advice, succinctly put in the best line of the poem:

"Try never to be a dick"

If more people played by this rule, I'd be a lot happier.
