Dying Throughout my Life...

In my youth I was Dying....Youthfully ..
First I was dying to finish H.S. and start college. And then I was dying to finish college and start working. And then I was dying to get married and have children.
And then I was dying that the children grow old enough to start school. And now I am dying to stop working and retire.
And now suddenly I have realizing I 've been dying through out many moments of of my youth.
This morning I opened my eyes alive!
Today is a great day to be alive!
For in youth I was dying to race to the meaning in life. There is no race! Living through these things, Is what makes us
change! The meaning of life...
It is not lying there somewhere behind the bushes, so you can race and search a little bit and find it.
It is not like a rock that you will find.
It is poetry to be composed.
It is a song to be sang.
It is a dance to be danced.
Alive in love!
Alive in pain!
Alive in hope!
Alive in faith!
Alive with passion, to grow old wise filled with grace! So my race is over,
my youth matured more alive everyday.
It's not so hard to be satisfied...
Because today is a great day!
Alive.....
