Rough Life


These days are coming to a slow and painful end
But all I need in life is that one true friend
Who can understand and respect me for who I am
who can care and love me for who I am
I'm always on the run and living from place to place
I don't have a bedroom, I live out of my suitcase
Another day, Another day I live to see the next
I mark the days on the calender with a check
A check to show that I live on to survive
And hopefully become someone in this world all before I die.

(Life is not easy)

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job Ive had. Last Monday I got a new Alfa Romeo from bringing in $7778. I started this 9 months ago and practically straight away started making more than $83 per hour. I work through this link, www.Bling6.com (Report) Reply

    Everything happens for a reason. Be strong, and stay focused. Pick up the pieces and go on. You can do it. (Report) Reply

    Liked your poem. Sounds like you were in a rough patch when you wrote it. I look at rough patches, like a speed bump in the road. Take it easy, and keep on going. Wishing all the best. (Report) Reply

    You are never alone, in this vast world. People who care for you might not be at your proximity, but they are always there for you, somewhere. God bless. (Report) Reply

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
