Does there really come a time,
where we have to step outside to the real world?

People protect us, just so we don't have to deal with it when we get older.
Even though the truth is, we are going to have to anyways.

We were not given life to have it protected.
We were given life to live it.
Not waste it.

And yet all we can do is sit laid back in a chair watching TV.
When there is other people, who aren't even blessed as luckily with they're lives.

And yet we still take our life for granted, wasting every step we take using them for our personal pleasure.
When other people, must take each step with wisdom and cautions.
Ad yet, we still let people walk all over us and push us into things we'd rather not do.
When there are people who have to be careful of who they boss around.

The world is filled with endless possibilities, yet we will still continue to waste them.
One by One.
Step by Step.
With each step we waste, how many possibilities disappear?
