Why not spend a day outside, taking deep breaths of fresh air,
Instead of watching so much tv, that your eyes are almost square.
Why not take in the beautiful wonder of the vibrant blue and sunny sky,
Instead of playing hours of Candy Crush, stuck on level 599.
Why not marvel at all the tall trees, with their leaves a deep shade of green,
Instead of the time spent listening to loud music, from Chris Brown to Patoranking.
Why not take time to enjoy the weather, maybe even dance in the rain,
Instead of the time spent adjusting the filters of your photos on Instagram.
Why don’t we take time to enjoy our lives in the best way that we see fit,
For we only live once, and sooner or later, we will all be done with it.
