Life Lessons

by d.h adelais 4 years ago in inspirational

A Poem Written In High School that Still Speaks to Me Today

There’s more to life than these four years

Self-identity does not come from letter grades

or teachers' approvals

Nobody is in charge of your happiness but you

You are you

Yesterday

Today

And Tomorrow

Why compare to who you will never be

Instead of embodying the unparalleled

Specimen that is you

Time is fleeting

Endlessly unraveling

Changing like the tides

Youth does not last forever

Live in the moment

They are temporary

As are all the tribulations I’ll

Overcome

Limitations are not permanent

Expectations are not law

Life is but an expedition

And it is all just beginning
