So many people love to tell others what they should do,
They point their fingers and whisper words of ridicule,
They Judge the world with the words they so often speak,
Look at others that are struggling, as if they are weak,
So many claim to have it all figured out,
Their statements scream they know what life’s all about,
While they Pass by strangers with looks of shame,
Little do they know we are all the same,
You can dress the flesh in whatever you’d like,
Suits from Armani and dresses of prestige delight,
The truth remains simple and bare,
In order to live we must breathe the same air,
We are naked and exposed when we all stand in our showers,
Yet we lie to ourselves thinking we possess so much power,
For at any moment disaster can destroy all we worked so hard to maintain,
We can be sentenced to a life with no title and no name,
The masks we wear tightly can suddenly melt away,
We can be left on the side of the road with nothing to say,
God forbid, we breathe our very last breath,
Earlier than we ever expect,
What would our legacy be?
Did we ever stop to help anyone else that was in a tragedy?
Or did we live like hypocrites and canker worms,
Treat those who were under us like contaminated germs,
We all have a day that’s written in the sky,
Let’s live with purpose before we have to say goodbye.

Contest: Fine line
It’s fine to be successful and work hard for what you have, but too many people make their title such an obsession that they forget about their families and friends. They forget how to love and listen; they become judgmental and critical of other people and begin to look down on people. Some even forget where they came from once they get where they want to go, while others simply never cared to look around to begin with.
There is a fine line…
