Life (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Life is waiting for you
So live it
That’s the beauty
It never gives up on us
It lives longer than you
Or me
You’ll see
Unless your dead already
But you can be reborn
Jut believe in love
Then hate will have no power
This hour
We all deserve life
But there is no promise
To the amount of life one has
No judgments
Just be
You owe no explanation to others
Life is waiting for you
So live it
Those letters belong to you
Be alive

A native of Kaplan, 27 people have joined the community ranking Kaplan at #6 in the top 10 places following. Yes!
