Life Is Short, Live To Be Happy

LIFE IS SHORT, LIVE TO BE HAPPY
A poem by Paul Sebastian

If happiness is chosen life lived
Walk the path of abundant living
Life rewards one who is giving
Life giving is worthwhile living

Life is short, live to be happy;
Why live days begrudgingly?
Why behave unforgivably?
When life offers joy, abundantly?

Life is short, live to be happy:
Why shore up price of anger?
Why sorely hurt, nurse envy?
Repressed emotions, long linger

Life is short, live to be happy:
Why self-immolate with burning hate?
Why court avarice, live negatively?
Path to abundance is clear, why deviate?

Life is short, live to be happy:
Callous remarks, make irreparable marks
Pride reigns only to fall crushingly
Basking in the light, why walk into the dark?

Life is short, live to be happy:
Happiness comes from choices made
Learning to love unconditionally
Life's success is what you create

Life is short, live to be happy:
If you do not like what you see, change!
Love the person you are, wholly
Become the person you envisage

Life is short, live happily
Live as if today is your last
Live in heaven on earth, till eternity
Born to be great, live as you must!
