Choose Life

I cry and I don't know why,
I vent and stress,
I struggle in a mess,
I scream and feel frustrated,
I lie and feel hated,
I cry and I don't know why.

I cry and I don't know why,
I sigh and smile,
I am tranquil for a while,
I sing and feel liberated,
I know my life is surely fated,
I smile... and I know why.

    Wonderful, excellent, I feel like only writing super superlatives here.
    It is such a great truth. Life is so complex, Often we cry, Often we are in tumult
    But if we look inside, we do not find a good reason.
    If we smile, it is so easy to find a reason and what is more, the world will smile with us.
    Fantastic poem, really inspiring.
    Keep writing more, Lenore
