Life - What Are The Things That Eat At You - Poem by Paul Warren

What are the things that eat at you
In the quiet times when you think it through
Do you mull over a time
When you should have been better in your rhyme

It may be that you weren't your best
And if taken now there'd be better results in the test
You'd think that once in a while
There'd be something to remember to make you smile.

    Paul, this one rhymes better than the superheroes one in which the search for rhyme seems desperate and leads to loss of meaning. (Report) Reply

    We all have some regret in life at one time or the other. This poem is a quiet and calm reflection on life. It brings on a mood of introspection and some soul-searching. (Report) Reply
