Carpe Diem

Updated on August 19, 2009

seize the day dont let it go away
open the windows with eyelashes I say
seize the day dont let it go away
don't doubt yourself life goes away, in flashes flashes 
like embers, burnt up ashes
in flashes flashes 
like embers, burnt up ashes

open the windows look outside
seize the day carpe diem
open the windows look outside
seize the day carpe diem

carpe diem
do or die
grab your denim and go outside
seize the day and feed on life
feast on love , live your life
cease the hate learn to love
be astronomical oh so unpredictable
go with the flow and don't be too cynical
oh, you'll look oh so pitiful
don't, be too pitiful
fall in snake pits or hit the pits
just get on with it
many mislead but don't follow the overgrown path
pave your own be your own person
open your purse some cause I know when your hurting
you'll need karma's favor


seize the day dont let it go away
open the windows with eyelashes I say
seize the day dont let it go away
don't doubt yourself life goes away, in flashes flashes 
like embers, burnt up ashes
in flashes flashes 
like embers, brunt up ashes

open the windows look outside
seize the day carpe diem
open the windows look outside
seize the day carpe diem


carpe diem
get some, make some-thing of yourself 
always remember there is no future in wealth
no future in wealth no future in wealth
its the achilles' heel of this planet's wheel
spin you rotate you rearrange you break you
don't give in to temptation its plaguing the nation
it is just instant gratification, for example a politician, say hey Clinton, oral fixation
ooh what fun, just have an enjoyable time
don't waste the wine
or wine too much
don't drink too much
don't think too much
the inside of a mind is a dangerous thing
open your rib cage and let the heart beats 
lead you 
they will never mislead you decieve you


seize the day dont let it go away
open the windows with eyelashes I say
seize the day dont let it go away
don't doubt yourself life goes away, in flashes flashes 
like embers, brunt up ashes
in flashes flashes 
like embers, brunt up ashes

open the windows look outside
seize the day carpe diem
open the windows look outside
seize the day carpe diem

carpe diem
stand tall don't collaspe
relaspe on addiction 
fixed on too much on diction
listen between the words
adjectives adverbs
make sure to watch for the birds
always be aware of the birds
don't hang with the pigeons, parrots or the crows
associate with the lovely doves
swift swans 
soar
leap jump
dive shake beat bump
be thankful for life
what would the world be like 
if a doctors knife
murdered you before you cried

open the windows look outside
seize the day carpe diem
open the windows look outside
seize the day carpe diem

seize the day dont let it go away
open the windows with eyelashes I say
seize the day dont let it go away
don't doubt yourself life goes away, in flashes flashes 
like embers, brunt up ashes
in flashes flashes 
like embers, brunt up ashes

seize the day dont let it go away
open the windows with eyelashes I say
seize the day dont let it go away
don't doubt yourself life goes away, in flashes flashes 
like embers, brunt up ashes
in flashes flashes 
like embers, brunt up ashes

Do you seize the day or let it slip away?

      I like the hypnotic nature of this poem. I really motivated me and as I am in a low density phase that says alot xD I really like the attitude, I'd like to read more poetry with this subject in mind. You portrayed it awesomely.

      "Seize the day...don't let it go away": dang right...DrewBreezzy. Alot to contemplate in this one, but: "don't doubt yourself life goes away, in flashes". Good line. Like the thinking behind this poem: inspiring us to "Pave our own path".
