You Live and You Die

A poem about living life.

You live and you die
nobody knows why
we can’t live forever
and get better and better
instead of getting old
wrinkles become so bold
youth on the young wasted
running about much is hasted
until father and mother time knocks
throwing each on the reality rock
youth has left you, gone with the wind
even smiling you have a new grin
the body has changed right before your eyes
no elasticity in your legs…
