life (according to someone)

life is something to do when
you are not asleep.
life is not about keeping score

it's not about how many friends you have
or how accepted you are.
not about if you have plans this weekend.
it isnt about who u are dating
who u used to date
how many people you have dated
or if you havent been with anyone at all.

it isnt bout who u have kissed
it's not about sex
it isnt about who your familyy is
or how much money they have
or what kind of car you drive
or where u are sent to school.

it's not about how beautiful or ugly u are
or what clothes you wear
what shoes u have on
or what kind of music you listen to.

it's not about if your hair
is blonde, red,black or brown
or if your skin is too lite or too dark
not about what grades you get
how smart you are
how smart everybody else thinks you are
or how smart standardised test says you are.

it's not about what club you are in
or how good you are at your sport

it's not representing your whole being
on a piece of paper
and see who will accept the "written you"

but life is about
who you love and who you hurt
it's about who you make happy
or unhappy purposely
it's about keeping or betraying trust
it's about friendship
used as a sanctity or a weapon.

it's about what you say and mean
maybe hurtful
maybe heartening
about starting rumors and contributing
to petty gossips
about what judgments you pass
and who your judgments are spread to.

so, you are into being a teacher or baby
it's about who you are ignored
with full and intention
it's about jealousy, fear, ignorance and revenge
it's about carrying inner hate and love
letting it grows and spreading it

but most of all
it's about using your life
to touch or poison other peoples' heart in such a way
that could have never occurred alone.
only you choose the way
those hearts are affected.
and those choices
are what life is all about.
