Favorite Quote:
When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then watch everyone wonder how you did it!

Seventeen is less than forty-two
but which seventeen?
the seventeen you use
when someone tells you a joke
the seventeen you use
when you want a facade
the seventeen you use
when you're happy
the seventeen you use
consciously and unconsciously
the seventeen you use
in your daily life
the seventeen you use
all the time
the seventeen you use
often or seldom, it's your choice
the seventeen you use
when you've done something worthwhile
the seventeen you use
when you finish that mile
the seventeen you use
when you smile

This is so good! And realistic! Time flies by so quickly leaving us confused how to act...

I love this poem, especially the part about smiling when you want to keep up a facade
