Streets Ahead

Life is a confined period of time.  Who knows truly what’s next.  Even if you believe in the God of the Bible, you find that there is disagreement as to how after life happens.  With this in mind, I thought it was pretty wise when talking to a friend she pointed out that life is precious so we should waste it wisely.  Sometimes, there is a lot of truth in humor.

Streets Ahead
by Michael Doyle

There was something she said
In being streets ahead
Life is precious so waste it wisely
Or, something like that only more precisely

There is a certain sense of cool
That you won't learn in school
But in the life that teaches you
In the moment that reaches you

In a universal supply and demand
Perhaps, it was her smile that helped me understand
As she stood there in the doorway
With me thinking on all she would say

There was something she said
In being streets ahead
Life is precious so waste it wisely
Or, something like that only more precisely

There is a certain sense of cool
That never teach us in school
But in the life that teaches you
In each moment that reaches you
