"Life is too short to spend it in tears",
so stop crying and smile;
Time to be an adult and face your fears,
you may find it to be worthwhile.

Life is too short to always be in the shadows,
so come out and make your presence known;
Time to scream out and shout hello,
you simply cannot always be alone.

Life is too short to always wonder "what if",
so go ahead and take that chance;
Time to stop living life like a stiff,
you need to grow some balls in those pants!

Life is too short to just mope around,
so go out there and really live;
In time you will be in the ground,
then you will have nothing to give!
Author's Notes:

Again, my thanks to Glata for the quote. This is a re-post.
