The golden rule

If I said life is for the living,

you’d think it was a cliche

like the things most people say

They pray hallowed be thy name almost everyday

To take the pain away

One day I am going to die

I have no control

In how that will happen

Save suicide

Maybe god in heaven lied

Maybe heaven is in each moment we grasp

In each hand we clasp

We are born into a world where we can learn.

Or we can burn effigies relentlessly

Looking for love or faith

To burn into our tiny minds

Sighing like we are swooning

Or dying a painful death

Each breath we take!

It is better to be real than fake

Each lie we make constructs a web

But it highlights everytime we bleed

Needing reassurance.

Life is for the living 

It is unforgiving

We relive our mistakes

Dreaming them out

Or screaming them out loud

and we don’t learn

Hell is in the mind also

Every time we regret or

hurt or the guilt we carry

That harries our everyday life

I don’t want despair to be my wife

Or it’s children hurt and strife

Life is for the living so be positive

Lead a fruitful life but limit the hurt you inflict on

yourself and others

Its the golden rule!
