High school is like prison
If you remember the past,
This title is true,
Teenagers are really villainous if you think about it,
From the cliques,
To the bullying,
I can't stand teenagers,
If you look at the world,
High school continues on,
Who really liked high school?
People will do what it takes to fit in,
That is the sad part of it,
Kudos to home schoolers,
And people with online learning,
If parents have any brains,
Or common sense,
These two ways are the best to educate,
They force kids to be independent learners,
When kids go to college, they expect to learn as they did in high school,
This will never be that reality,
Independent learning occurs in college,
Believe what you want about high school,
It is like a prison in so many ways,
Learn to be good and nice to others,
This is all that can be said and done as time passes forward.
He was a former cop,
However, something happened to him,
He has reincarnated from the dead,
He has been dead for five years,
This happened to him recently,
No one can see him,
However, he can go about business in town himself,
He can always go back to his grave as well,
This new life feels great to him,
Death is a scary concept,
For anyone at large,
However, he is alive again,
Where will he go?
What areas will he explore in the world?
This is really up to him,
There is nothing else to add here,
For death is powerful,
A second chance at life greater,
Take care, my good man,
Do what you can while alive and live life the best way you know how now.
Why do people who had it so bad growing up have kids themselves?
This is a question to ponder,
Why is that these people who had so bad?
Have decided to marry and have a family?
Look nowadays it is really expensive to have a family,
Let alone get married,
My theory is that people have to fit in,
Or they love stress, a lot of it,
Think about it,
People love problems and causing ill will for others,
This has been around forever,
Too many people are having families,
This is at an alarming rate,
You can't tell someone that they are wasting their time,
We live in a world where people suddenly want to be nice,
Then when the responsibilities pile up,
They think otherwise,
We already have more than enough people,
On planet Earth, that is,
We actually could use a break,
For at least 50 to 100 years,
Again, as I have said before,
Believe what you want,
This is a free world,
I will believe in what I want to,
Take care for now and follow a path with prosperity,
Again, carpe diem.
Why does the military have chaplains?
