A poem to live your dreams

you should live your dreams.

it is all possible


There are 36 seconds between your life and a knife

You now have to live out all of your dreams before your throat will get sliced

There is no point in crying about regrets in your life

Like if you regret the fact that you once were a whore

Because your life will soon be ending so waste time crying no more

Don’t take the time to think about your mortality now

Because you have 36 seconds before your throat is ripped out

So go ahead and run and find what you want to do

Go ahead and kiss the girl that you have always wanted to

And did you ever think you would never lose the time to graduate school?

3 years ago you were sitting on the phone wishing you could too?

But you took the road most travelled and got a dead-end job at 19

And now you’re 23 and you still do the same thing

And now you just turned 30 and your hourly pay is less than 13

And now time is passing while you sit and you just turned 36

Like the seconds before the bomb drops and now all you can do is wish

And you there sitting at your computer,

Or on your phone reading this

Your 36 seconds has begun counting down so go ahead and tell me your greatest wish

I’m pretty sure when the time comes you wouldn’t say that your dream

Would be to read some crappy poem that was written by me.

36 seconds is not a long time to be given, Kossettes!! Great point though, about wasting lives away. And really well-written too!
