27 (who?)
In a moment of despair,
We never know what we do,
With the emotions running high,
We need to learn to hang on and think wise.

In a moment of pain,
Where the hurt grows stronger,
Making one weaker and desolate,
There should be a reminder that there’s a better day coming soon.

In a moment of happiness,
We should never forget,
That it’ll never last forever,
So treasure it to make it an everlasting memory.

In a moment of love,
Ask yourself whether it is right,
Do you give more than you take,
Is it right and are you sure.

In a moment of loneliness,
One may find that the world spins slow,
But in truth it is a state of mind,
Which keeps you from seeing the brighter side of life.

In a moment of lust,
Think ahead of your actions,
Make sure you don’t do anything,
To hurt anyone’s feelings.

In a moment of lying,
Don’t ever take things for granted,
For the pain and hurt that you might create,
Will last longer and hurt ever more.

In a moment like this,
Advice and philosophy can go on and on,
But what’s more important,
Is that we try to live by atleast a few of them.

In every moment you’re alive,
Remember the good things in your life,
Be thankful for all you’ve got,
And live to the best you can.

In every moment that you live,
May you always be blessed,
With the treasures of life,
That makes everything bright and happy.
Spur of the moment writing again... Was thinking of a few incidents of my life while taking part in an alms giving this morning (serving food to Buddhist monks).

And it got me thinking of all these... I'm sure there was more.. but I can't remember it all...

I can really relate to this. And it is good advice. There were times when I took a lot for granted and times where i found ways to screw things up a lot. I love the positivity(Is that a word?) in this too. Sometimes people forget about the good things in life and always think of the bad things..this helps :kitty:

You have a lot of great advice in here, like people before me have said. I like how there's the pattern throughout the entire poem, and then the last two stanzas change the first line from "In a moment" to "For every moment" because it really emphasizes life and living it to the fullest. Overall, this is a really great poem!
