Each One..... - Poem by Valerie Dohren

Each one gives, each one takes
Sometimes loves, then foresakes

Each one wins, each one fails
Weighs the cost, tips the scales

Each to come, each to go
Rising high, sinking low

Each one came, each one left
Hearts to bind, hearts bereft

Each one laughs, each one cries
Each one lives, each one dies

    A fatalistic, truthful dose of realism, done with a swift and clever swipe of your pen-concise (Report) Reply

    Each one wins, each one fails
    Weighs the cost, tips the scales
    ....
    Each one came, each one left
    Hearts to bind, hearts bereft

    Each one laughs, each one cries
    Each one lives, each one dies

    It happens to us all. Sometimes it's good to know that others can relate our varied experiences. Beautifully expressed. 10

    Like it, if we live, we die, it's what each one of us does in that time that counts.
    A great poem.
