Think a little


Is it wise risking life for nothing?
Is your life completely yours,
Or others have a stake?
Have you ever thought
What you mean to your parents,
To your wife and kids?
What will happen to them
If you leave them in the midway?
Are you so selfish and arrogant
You are not at all concerned about those
Who love and live for you
Is risking life for the sake of risk
Worth taking?
Is surrendering to tobacco, alcohol
And drugs add to your life
Or take the juice out of it?
Is using a cell phone while riding
Helps you better manage time
Or takes you to a dead-end
Is life for momentary pleasure
Or something else?
Is life so meaningless
To be wasted on nothing
Think about it!
Before your idiocy costs you dearly
Before you land your family
In a pool of sorrow
And snatch away their smiles
Leaving them living dead to
Live the rest of their lives.
