I've Been There Too - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

I've Been There Too
Written by: Wilfred Mellers
June 12,2014

I've been lied to and then cried to
I've been used, abused, and then misused
I've been snubbed, unplugged, and the wrong way rubbed
I've been taken advance of
I've had fake love and been made fun of
I've been scorned, torn, and misinformed
I've been accused, bruised, and been confused
I've been upset, on stage I've sweat and outdated like the cassette

I've been at times totally lost
I've been on many rivers perilous I've crossed
I've been taken, forsaken, and mistaken
I've been cheated, deleted, and mistreated
I've been tired, fired, and desired
I've been scared, feared, and even jeered

I've many times tried, been denied, and crucified
I've been adorned, and uniform of military I've worn
I've waited, been hated, and investigated
I've had more than my fair share
I've lost a good portion of my hair
I've felt the sting of despair
I've been broken in need of repair
I've had more than I could even bear

I've felt the fire that took me higher
I've laughed at satire, and I still aspire
I've had good times, I've had bad times too
I've know days of roses, the sunshine, and skies blue
I've faced solemn moments I regret
I've had blissful nights I will never forget
I've gotten drenched in the rain
I've seen my savings go down the drain

I've danced, I've cried for god knows I've tried
I've been down, I've been up and at times I've been abrupt
I've won some, I've lost some, and I've even been lonesome
I've been here, I've been there yet I've never had an affair
I've been weak, I've been strong, I've love hard, and I've love long
I've known happiness and gladness
I've felt elation, numbness to sadness
I've known the greatest joy for this I know no man can destroy
