Two little kids were playing in the street.
They were bouncing a dodge ball to each other’s feet.
The neighborhood was quiet, people were gone or inside.
The two little kids, played ball with all their might.
No parent was around to monitor this play.
No one else was outside enjoying this perfect day.
They continued to play and bounce around this ball.
The two boys were enjoying the glorious season of Fall.
But here comes a car, wanting to pass.
And instead of braking, flooring on the gas.
When suddenly one boy, put his hand out and yelled ‘STOP!’
The other boy stood there as the ball and his jaw dropped.
His piercing eyes meant ‘Oh, don’t you dare.’
His posture was strong as much as his stare.
He got closer to the car and said ‘You’ve got to slow down!’
The driver shrugged and said ‘I didn’t see you boys around.’
Everyone out of breath, released a big sigh.
Both boys stood firm, and didn’t even cry.
But the driver did… he shed a little tear.
He realized this karma, was revisiting a fear.
For when he was a boy, he was almost hit.
And he watched his friend die, from the same s**t.
It was a reminder to drive safely and slow down.
Or the cycle will continue and go ‘round and ‘round.
It’s a wakeup call to be reminded of your past.
Perhaps, you need to take your foot off of the gas.
It’s also a reminder, to appreciate life.
Because time isn’t always on your side.
So take the life lesson, you just learned from these boys.
Life is precious and meant to be enjoyed.
