    walking down lightly lit street
    I hear an old man about to say,
    "Life ain't worth the stay.
    You live you wake and burn your days and
    though too long before you know it they're gone"
    I decide to hear his words and put them to work
    and before I knew it I was gone

    I like the poem :hug:
    but they can't be words to live by
    wouldn't they be words to die by?

    Sounds like a poem of being stuck in the past and/or future.

    I am sarcastic by nature, hence: "words to live by". The poem is more of a dream-like situation where time is a bit confused.
