WHAT IS LIFE ABOUT ...?
Life is not about keeping score.
It is not about how many friends you have
or how accepted you are.
It is not about who your family is,
or how much money they have.
Or what kind of car you drive.
Or where you went to school.
It is not about how beautiful or ugly you are,
or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on,
or what kind of music you listen to.
It is not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown,
or if your skin is too light or too dark.
Life just is not those things.....
Life is about who you love and who you hurt.
It is about who you make happy or unhappy, purposely.
It is about keeping or betraying trust.
It is about friendship, used as sanctity or as a weapon.
It is about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.
It is about starting rumours and contributing to petty gossip.
It is about what judgments you pass and why...
and who your judgments are spread to.
It is about who you have ignored with full control and intention.
It is about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.
It is about carrying inner hate and love,
letting it grow and spreading it.
But most of all, it is about using your life to touch or poison,
other people's hearts in such a way that
could have never occurred alone.
You, and only you, choose the way those hearts are affected...
AND THOSE CHOICES ARE WHAT LIFE'S ABOUT.
