A poem

for Sadje’s What Do You See? photo prompt




Life shouldn’t be a race my friend,

life should be a dance.

Don’t rush toward the tape my friend,

there is no second chance.


Don’t spin around in circles,

the same things day by day.

Let go and see what lies beyond,

believe in what comes may.


Life is precious, far too short,

so cherish every minute.

Enjoy a life outside the sphere,

adventure knows no limit


It’s no rehearsal, this is it,

when this day’s gone it’s passed.

Life plays us tricks, it has no heart,

this day could be your last.


Don’t race through life, it won’t last long,

don’t run, prefer to dance.

Savour every moment friend,.

there is no second chance.

    So very true. It’s the way hubby and I roll. It’s the only way to roll.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Keith. 🙂

    Wise words. When presented the opportunity to do something for someone else, do it, that’s my favorite way to dance through life.
