Happy 2018 – Day 154 – Life’s too short…

I felt a surge of poetic inspiration today. And here’s the result!


Life’s too short. 

So eat dessert first

And be honest with people

Starting with yourself

Even – More so – if it hurts.

Life’s too short. 

So wear that garish jacket you’ve been saving

And those huge earrings

Regardless of opinions or occasion

Even if you risk being out of place.

Life’s too short. 

So skip the party

Or go.

Whatever feels right to you.

Even if you risk passing offence.

Life’s too short. 

So kiss, fight, live and give

With passion. Love and Trust.

Knowing that each day’s sunset could be your last.

Or even theirs.
