The Values of Life
Life is something people take for granted
They say, "I'll swear on my life!"
So are you saying you'd die for that stupid promise you made?
That promise to brush your teeth everyday?
That's worth your life?
I see adults wince when they hear children swearing on their innocent lives
They know the value of a life
They know how easily it can be taken
Just what could make them see that?
Death is the only way to see life
It seems odd doesn't it?
But death reveals what human hearts can't see from the darkness and blood that surrounds it
In truth, the human heart is lonely
That is why it accepts death so easily
Because it is a friend in it's darkness
When that person is gone, another cries
That person has learned the value of life
That a person's life is not to be thrown away
That human's shouldn't try to be God and kill their enemies
The funny thing is,
People claim they can take a life,
But when they do they grieve and go into shock and try to take their own lives
That is when you the value of a life
In the end, all people will eventually know the truth that a life is more valuable that anything
We shouldn't waste it on things that could end it sooner
We should push ourselves to reach our goals
Push, but not over that fragile edge
That edge that crumbled when we don't look.
