Realize

I've been doing a lot of thinking. About life and what direction I'm taking. I've come a long way and I'm proud of myself for letting go of some of those bad habits that haunted me in the past. I wrote this poem when I was doing some reflecting and soul searching about a year ago. 

When you're young
All you wanna do is have fun.
No worrying about tomorrow.
Because, when you're livin on borrowed time,
You don't realize right away
Just how wrong you might be.

You say, life is short.
You gotta live for the moment.

The here and now.
Today, not tomorrow.

See, I'm not trying to criticize
I just want to analyze
and let you see things,
from my point of view.

Because nobody wants to wake up
and realize that life has passed them by.

Nobody wants to wake up
asking them selves why?

So think about life. 
Because it is what you make it.

And you don't want to shorten your life span,
By living life too fast.

Because the fast lane,
is for those runnin on max,

And we can't all, live life like that.
