Editor’s note: This piece was written for the Teenage Writers Workshop feature package coming this week.

life is a race—try to win
life is an exam—try to pass and be happy
life is a river—try to find treasure
life is gold—try to give to others
life is a box of treasure—try to open it and find the way of life  
life is like paper—try to write memories of happy days
life is like time—try to use it in good ways
