Your Worth As A Person

Your worth as a person you constantly doubt
And you feel you've nothing to feel happy about
Your wife has left you and taken the children and with her new lover she sleep
And you feel better karma you deserve to reap.

To her in alimony you give half of your weekly pay
'Twould seem the Lady of Luck from you has turned away
You were good to her and the children but to you she was not a good wife
We meet many trials on our journey in life.

You love her and the children but it seems sad to say
That she does not love you it does seem that way
There is not a place for you in her future plan
Her love and devotion is to another man.

The World is against you that's how to you it does seem
And of late you've been suffering of low self esteem
The woman you love is another man's Rose
But then such is life one does have to suppose.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
