Life is short so they say
Try to look at it from my way
I’ve been homeless three times
People get hurt all the time
In the fourth grade two people died which left me confused
But back in December another died and it all cleared up
My life could end tomorrow
And what would be thought of me by you
I have no certain expiration date
And neither do you
One of the most important things in life is
To live every day like it was your last
Be on the move and don’t let anything ­ANYTHING slow you down
But the absolute most important thing is to be yourself
And if people don’t like ohhh well that’s their loss
The secret to living life to the fullest is to
Dance as much as walk
Sing as much as talk
Laugh as much as you breathe
Love as long as you live
