Do you ever think
about how
life is just
breathing
until you don't?

My friend once told me
that everything you do in life
simply leads up to your death.
Which, I suppose,
is true,
but I like to think of it
as living and living
until death stops you
from living anymore.

"Why do anything in life,"
he reasoned,
"if you're going to die anyway?"

I thought for a moment,
and then replied,
"Why do people send roses
to their loved ones
if the flowers just die?

Maybe everything is
temporary.
Maybe we should stop
looking for forever,
because we're never going
to find it.

You don't get a prize
for dying.
It would be in your best interests
to live right now,
don't you think?"
ugghhhhhh i'm not happy with this one but i had a conversation w/ my friend about this and i keep thinking about how temporary everything in life is. idk. i wanted to write a good poem but this is just askjfksdjf. poop.

anyway. probably gonna scrap this later. 

copyright me you lil shits
