Life Is Not A Joke - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Not a few suffer from pain
Or heartache and even sorrow;
Vibration from woes gets stronger
As one lives another morrow.

Life is indeed not a farceur,
Insult, ire and anger abound;
Checking one's emotion though
Helps him to cool it down.

Endless wars are a common picture,
causing fears and sleepless nights;
Silent innocent can do nothing but run,
hide and turn off the lights.
