Life Is...


Life is a never-ending stream

Just when you think it has ended,

You go around a bend

And it keeps on going.


Life is a book

Every word, every page,

Is your life

You just have to know how to read it.


Life is a storm

Darkening skies and lightening,

But then

Bright, sunny, cloudless skies lay ahead.


Life is a rose

Even with the thorns,

You have to treat is delicately

Otherwise you will crush your dreams.


Life is something

You need to fight for,

Even though there will be hard times

You can never give up on.......LIFE.

wow, you gave an excellent example poem. its really good. talking about what life looks like. that is really awesome how you described it. my favorite verse out of this is "Life is a rose Even with the thorns, You have to treat is delicately Otherwise you will crush your dreams." Sydney

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
