Life Is A Blessing

Rating: 5.0

Whoever said life is a blessing,
Told a satanic lie!
You struggle
Until you die,
A soulless body,
Just a nose bleed to a society
Not wanting to know
The acne face of your failures.

I’ve been humbled

On heartless streets,

Uriah, you need to move to a different spot where lilacs blloom gloriously and people smile back at you when you say 'good day.' You need to associate with peoople who truly believe life is a blessing and then act like it. Raynette

I go along with Mary on this. You structure the work so well and place such wonderful lines where they are least expected. it almost makes you forget the theme. Brilliant all the same Uriah

Yes, you are in a dark mood huh Uriah? What I love about how you write is your ability to describe what seems to be the ''entire life'' of the subject in your poems. It's like we know them so well we could almost predict where they will go next or what they will do. Probably due to such wonderfully vivid images. (even if they're not ''pretty'') You're a pro Uriah. Sincerely, Mary
