This is just a joke,
life will continue to choke.
It won't let up,
until we're down abrupt.
Life tries to defeat us,
then turn to delete us.

If you let it,

I'm going to take some b r e a k s.
If I have to cause some earth shakes.
Life can't force me down,
as long as my brain is sound.
It may trick me,
then try to lick me,
but I don't take any of it that serious,
I refrain from getting ferious.
Get excited for what,
life will really kick your butt!

Laugh at this sometimes ridiculous place,
it's that or end up on your face.

Life walked up to me,
big as day you see.
It screamed,

"you're suppose to be afraid!"
I looked it right in the eye and said,

"for what,
you're still going to kick my butt!"

Then I started laughing as it beat me.

The pain hurt real bad,
but I never went sad.

I'm on a permanent break.

I'll be breaking in my grave.
but I will not be lifes slave.

Bet that.

Witty title. I like your attitude--"Then I started laughing as it beat me."
