Living Life Before It's Too Late
I'm playing it safe.
I'm on my way to the cemetery. I am.
Life is a journey. Keep the faith and play it safe.
Handle things with respect.
Don't walk before you talk. Don't judge before you know.
People are always around you. Make contacts. Accept your life.
Choose the right things. You will fail. You will learn.
Cry if you want to. Don't die if you want to. Keep living.
Pretend it's a good world, but see the reality. It hits you sometimes.
Your eyes can see things your mouth doesn't want to talk about.
Your ears can hear things, but you don't need to speak it all out.
Choose wisely. Always. All friends aren't friends. Learn to pick the right ones.
Hug your children. Show your love.
Find that inner piece. The road can be bumpy sometimes.
Search for the meaning. Don't be afraid. Learn things and imagine a wonderful world.
You are here right now. Tomorrow is still blank.
You can plan ahead and aim for a goal. Try to reach it. Don't give up.
You are on your way – always. Take a chance – sometimes.
Do things you remember. The past haunts some of us. Forgetting can be hard.
It's the time in your life right now, when things are changing.
One day you'll be old – if you are fortunate to be alive.
I know. You are playing it safe.
On the way to the cemetery there's no time left.
Life is sometimes shorter than we think.
I'm acting today.
