Scar - Poem by Lyn Paul

Sometimes we are punished for who we are
This can leave, a nasty scar
But it's trying to not take these words in
For you cannot choose your next of kin
You can choose though, Your solid ground
And turn your life, right around
There is new hope, Everyday
There always is, A better way
So get out there and think of you
Your life should never, ever be blue

    Great poem, us humans are far to judgmental and unforgiving as a species. (Report) Reply

    yes! this poem will do nicely for March showcase,2017.

    you express some worthy thoughts. 'It' is easier said than done, but we should strive to NOT use that as an excuse to stop (or not start) trying to improve our quality of life, if we are not satisfied with it. but, first, stop to consider if life is so bad for you. and: how can you help make it better?

    and........give a bit of thought to others as you go along 'your way'.

    p.s. i ALWAYS think of ME, Me, me! ! ! ! !
