Life is like a carver
the body is the stone
not quite as fragile as glass
which may shatter when it's blown

Within the stone is beauty
just waiting to come out
if the path that's chosen fractures
it can be patched up with grout

Live life to the fullest
no matter what you do
you'll just look like a Picasso
if you end up all askew

Appreciate life's artwork
before you are unable
because before you know it
the stone becomes unstable

With the world as its museum
the carver does it's thing
your part is just living
your personality the bling

This entry also double as L for Blog your name out:-)  I'm blogging out Melanie and on day 3.
