You Only Live Once

You only live once, or so I am told,
Make the most out of life, be brave and be bold.
Sure there are days that are troubled and sad,
But look for the good, don't search for the bad.
Maybe there's a day when your Grandmother died,
Or a day when your best friend cheated and lied.
Just try to remember that life will go on,
Because before you know it life will be gone.
The sun will set and once again rise,
The days will pass by right before your own eyes.
The flowers will bloom and the sun will shine bright,
Some days are perfect and yet some are a fright.
But in life you must know to give to recieve,
Life gives you options,
You just have to believe.
You know you can do it, you can live your life good,
Be honest and trustworthy, you know that you should.
You only live once, or so I am told,
Life life for yourself, now that's very bold.
