In My Eyes - Poem by Derrick Gwynn

every day i look at the fear in other peoples eyes
none of them can come close to mine
fearing that every day my family might lose a life
knowing that i must survive
in order to continue this fight called life

i have come to realized
that my life can end at a blink of an eye
from which a tear will have learned to fly
out of my eye

but i must ask why
must everyone have to die

you may try to run from it
but fate takes you home

then once again you will feel alone

    This poem makes me so sad but it also makes me realise the truth in it. Life will always have its ups and downs but we have to remember to never give up. That's what I get from this poem! ! (Report) Reply
