I believe in life and death

Sometimes I wonder why people take life for granted. In my fourth period there is a girl who sits next to me, she never says anything. When the teacher calls on her she speaks so low that no one can hear her speak. Basically its like she’s not saying anything at all. These are the kind of people who make me want to live life for them. This deep and serious thought came to me while my mom was telling me the art of hanging Christmas lights, I kind of zoned out. I was thinking what you do now determine who you’re going to be in the future, right. I mean who wants to be 31 and lonely. You should live life to the fullest. You should live like it really means something. The beginning and the end that’s all there is. So why not live it to the fullest. Life is to short to live it just for yourself.
