"Life or Death," Christine Huang, Eighth Grade, PS/IS 499

Life is a rose,
Where it can wither away.
Death is a gloomy cemetery,
Where nothing is happy.

Would you rather live...
Or die...

Live on, to start the fun,
Don't die to run away.
Live on, people are waiting.
Don't die to cause grief.

It's better to live...
Than die...

Live on, to start over,
Don't die to let your beloved ones down
Living on will do the best.
Dying causes grief.

Live on...
Don't die...
