A poem that I wrote to inspire people to action.
Why don't people ever take risks? or face challenges? Why do people seem to be enjoying life less and less?

So many people, don't ever stop to think. They go each day without praying or believing . Not enjoying every second. they never open windows. They just slam the windows closed. They miss out on so many of life's opportunities. They trample the good things. Burying them in the ground with each tread. The glass is smashed and shattered when the windows close. One more opportunity passed by. Looking here, Looking there, it is a sorry sight to see. Busy as bees. Too busy to stop. Too busy to relax and breathe. We only get one shot at life. We can't blow our only chance. Go through each open window. Take the bad along with the good. Take pride in the risks, life isn't perfect. nobody said it was. But it is better than the alternative. Take the open window challenge. Enjoy your life, and help others to enjoy their's more.
