Grey Thoughts - Poem by Mark Normand

Once I thought about a day.
Where faith and love had gone away.
And the only thing left was the color gray.
Could I find a reason to live?
If I tried what good could I give?
In a world without hope to keep me strong.
I think of a life where everything's wrong.
If no happiness or joy could be found.
Would the birds all sing a painful sound?
Would little children still laugh and play?
If all of the good in life went away.
And left us without color to brighten up our day.

    Your poems carry good rhythm and emotion. However, I think perhaps if you used end-rhyming less consistently, it would provide more emphasis when it is used. Experiment with different methods such as internal rhymes and alliteration. But by all means keep up the writing especially if it continues to bring you joy. (Report) Reply

    If all the good in life went away, how miserable life would be - we need all the good we can get. Very well penned. (Report) Reply
