We Lived To Die

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Living Life

Living Life

We lived our lives to the fullest

We lived to die

We swam with sharks and climbed Mount Everest

We lived to die

We raced along the lonesome road on our bikes

We lived to die

We bungee jumped off the highest bridge flying like a kite

We lived to die

We camped in the amazon forest and explored nature

We ate off the land, no restaurants, no waiter

We stated a fire from flint

We watched the stars dance in the sky while smiling down on us

We embraced nature in its simplicity, no fuss

We swam in the beautiful blue lagoon

As the waters of love enriched our aching soul

We helped to save a few dolphins and birds

We honored life as in the beginning was the word

We slept on rooftops and ran from ghost

We lit bond fire, drank and told jokes

We lived our life like each day was the last

We lived to die

We had a blast.

Cool poem Clive. As soon as we are born we live to die. Life is so short and fragile. So take advantage of it while you have it. Live life to the fullest, and try to enjoy the little thing. Nice work!
