Pretty Pictures - Poem by Lauren B Called

All the pretty pictures
in my head
of times gone by
loved ones now dead
do you remember how it felt
to be there
but no answer comes
when you're speaking to thin air
force yourself to find the happy things
that lift you up
but sometimes the weight is too heavy
and those things aren't enough
one day you couldn't move
and the next day you did
put one foot in front of the other
force yourself to live
living hurts as much as dying
when death surrounds
all we can do is just keep trying
until one day it don't

    So true. At first it is unbearable to even contemplate living on, yet step by step it not only gets easier it also gets more worthwhile. Excellent write. (Report) Reply

    A great poem, if we let the hurt take over too much, we can forget how to live. (Report) Reply
