What Life is About

0 Comments 01 July 2003 / by

life isn’t about keeping score.

it’s not about how many friends you have

or how accepted you are.

not about if you have plans this weekend or if you’re alone.

it isn’t about who you have kissed,

it isn’t about who your family is or

how much money they have

or what kind of car you drive.

or where you are sent to school.

it’s 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’s not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown,

or if your skin is too light or too dark.

not about what grades you get how smart you are,

how smart everybody else thinks you are,

or how smart standardized tests say you are.

life just isn’t.

life is about who you love and who you hurt.

it’s about who you make happy or unhappy purposely.

it’s about keeping or betraying trust.

it’s about friendship, used as a sanctity or as a weapon.

it’s about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.

it’s about starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.

it’s about what judgments you pass and why.

and who your judgments are spread to.

it’s about who you’ve ignored with full control and intention.

it’s about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.

it’s about carrying inner hate and love,

letting it grow and spreading it.

but most of all, it’s about using your life to touch or poison

other people’s hearts in such a way that could have

never occurred alone.

only you choose the way those hearts are affected, and those

choices are what life’s all about.

today let this rainbow remind your friends and family

of what life is really all about.
