Mental Misery - Poem by Dwayne Bailey

There once was a man who died very young,
though the doctors knew not the cause;
Even though he was in great shape,
physically he had no flaws.

But the man still died even though he was young
and very very healthy.
For he died of loneliness with a broken heart;
He died in mental misery.

    It is indeed unfortunate when men die, not of the body, but of the spirit. There is great wisdom in your work. A perfect 10! (Report)Reply

    Very sad write, but true Dwayne it can happen. A broken heart may never mend, but
    with love it could again...
