Life is not always perfect


life can be ****ed up,
but what can we do?
whine and cry
because the things we want
you can't have?
or just change the way
you see life?
life can be unfair,
why let it bring you down?
you can't change what happens,
or what's going to happen,
you control your life,
nobody else
so to place blame on somebody,
only shows,
that you have no courage
to take responsibity,
for the way your life was going
fight through when times get hard,
why cry when nothing will change?
the people who are gone,
will never return,
that guy that broke your heart,
will fall in love again,
why should you remain,
trapped in the past,
plus everything you want to change,
only to find,
it was out of your reach to begin with,
except for....
Right here and Right now,
because what matters the most,
is when you realize,
that life not as bad as you thought,
when you find that person inside,
that know pain is part of life journey,
even though life sucks,
you have to fight through it,
without letting it get the best of you.

    that life not as bad as you thought,
    when you find that person inside,
    that know pain
    is part of life journey,
    even though life sucks,
    you have to fight through it,
    without letting it get the best of you..................
    life is a journey of own by time and space
    yet trudging through joy and sorrow
    by tide and ebbs all across betiding
    may happens to happen instinctively distinctive
    but by the gleams of inevitability as intoned
    as when everything ephemeral by mortality
    and finale reasons to reason by quantum of Zero.....wonderful versing by the philosophy of life, yet we move onwards never yet meandering all across, utterly of course with audacity of hope audacity of hope, not yet of all hedonistic delight, quite eloquently ingenious, superb feeling by reality,10+++, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    'the people who are gone,
    will never return,
    that guy that brok your heart,
    will fall in love again,
    why should you remain,
    trapped in the past'...

    I feel you are in a hurry to write down your thoughts rather than writing a poem. May be a little more effort...? a little more polish...? All the best. (Report) Reply

    Very empowering poem, drenched in truth and wisdom. The only thing I would suggest is to show rather than tell. Try and push you're creavitity to new limits and see what you could come up with. You have a great foundation for an inspiring poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
