A metaphoric view of/on life

Enjoy your daily slice of life.

Take the daily bread of life you are given,
Sometimes you overtoast your slice -
and get burnt,
other times you use too much butter -
and people you hurt.

But if you do not like your given slice,
Take it back, change it for another,
this time scrape off the burnt bits -
and skip the butter.

See, we are all given,
the same slice of life,
how everything turns out -
Well, it depends on what you do with your slice.

Certainly you look very promising! I would love to read more of your work in the upcoming days.

I think the very title of your poem is fit for the content you have put in the work. I have commented on one of your poems at www.poemhunter.com, and here as well.
