    Making bricks out of powder, but not building a house.
    Sugar coated Dreams I see u you turning your a.. out
    But Honey tell me where has that really gotten you
    Besides laying on your back with empty pockets
    You got to start building with something substantial
    A foundation of knowledge upon which to stand
    For when you are standing firmly upon nothing
    You will definitely fall for absolutely anything
    The future lies before us as blank impatient canvas
    Whereon we may paint life with any brushstrokes
    But I beg of us take caution with our careless hand
    Before we make an imprint that shall forever stand,
    Find a cause to die for and then live it to the fullest
    Give it everything within you while you are able
    So at the end you could look back with no regrets
    Knowing that you have done you absolute best​

    I agree, well put poets, if there is something worth living for, then there is something....worth dying for!
    Great piece, enjoyed the read.

    Some regrets, whew, they are quite difficult to live with, and even more difficult to possibly die because of. Powerful flow, I salute the 2 of you. :)
