So much waste and so little time.
A waste of youth and beauty sublime.

Silence is the strongest love at all times.

Some of these lost beauties end up with a brain.
Others with a life of pain.

Yes a life of pain.

The life is drained out of you like an hour glass of time.

The care free days are gone now because no fun is for free.

And some of these lost beauties end up with a brain.
Others with a life of pain.

Yes a life of pain.

I really like this. But not so much the rhymes.
Don't you think you restrict yourself by rhyming so much? I find that the best rhymes just happen; without deliberation or pretentiouness, and I don't think this reads like that. It seemed a little forced - only in that area, of course - everything else was hard hitting and really heartfelt.

Welcome Steve!
