Life is a Gift

Jason Thompson

You who say that life isn’t precious
Don’t understand its true beauty
You sit and criticize and don’t realize
That you treat this life so rudely

Life is a gift
From which all blessings spring
It isn’t something you can throw away
It isn’t some spineless “thing”

Life brings the best
Out of all of our souls
Life makes us chase
The most grueling of goals

Because life brings possibilities
Death cannot comprehend
Life is reality
Far away from pretend

So cherish life
Before it passes you by
Take it all in
One day at a time
