Life

I had a poem.I thought I should share it with World pulse.It is never too late to mend all the mistakes that you have made in your life,as long as you are still alive,you will have time to mend and live a straight life.
LIFE.

Life is short,
Don't ever waste it.
Life is sweet,
Take time to taste it.
Life is a journey,
Find the right path.
Life is entertaining,
Don't be afraid to laugh.
Life is for good times,
make them last.
Life has its bad times,
Put them in the past.
Life is a chance,
Make sure you take it.
Life has valleys and mountains,
Don't give up.
But most importantly,
Life is what you make

What is a soul?Is it as light as air,as beautiful as an angel?is your soul what keeps you alive?are you your soul?I think if we just keep feeding our souls with stories of encouragement,we will find out what our soul really is.
Girls have the power to rule all over the world.But we cannot rule because we do not want to,we are in a new generation where there is democracy.Let us work hard in school and be ruling our countries in the next generation.WE POWER ALL THE WAY.
LOVE,
Leila.

Life is what you make it!

Hi Leila,

What a beautiful and inspirational poem! I will keep this poem close to me for when I am feeling discouraged. And I love this part, "I think if we just keep feeding our souls with stories of encouragement, we will find out what our soul really is." I agree with you Leila and have experienced this through all of the encouragement and friendships I have made here on PulseWire. Thank you for sharing this poem.

Love,
Jade

hi janice,

How have you woke up today?Hope fine.I am almost going to sleep,although i am still awake for the next one hour.I had a very nice day today,because i went and visited some patients at the hospital.I thought i should give them words of encouragement because it also heals a part of them that was unwell.Everybody says they would like to know more about you.Because they have had so much about you. hope you have a nice day.
Love,
L
