'Drink That Beer ' - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

In solitude
drown in emptiness
I languish in miseries
as life becomes meaningless

Pain sucks my soul
and enthuse self -pity
I reflect on the realities
found nothing but remorse

People come to console
yet they too have darkness
we all succumb to imperfections
as human beings we are vulnerable

At this hour
none is more helpful
but indulge consolation
so join me let's drink beer

    Very good poem. I sometimes share the feelings, but I prefer the comfort offered by a cup of tea. (Report) Reply

    Truth spoken, hope I have learned to just listen when one comes to cry on my shoulder. Not easy...We always try to find ways of fixing problems or give similar examples forgetting that people can fix themselves sometimes all they need is only a shoulder to cry or an ear to hear them...
