Sometimes - Poem by Adam DeBaere

Peace in this life seems so far away.
Everybody looking for happiness, but still stray.
Love is harsh and never seems to be real.
I don't know anyone who cares how you feel.

The design to live this life is hard and rough,
Making the right choices seems so damn tough.
Nowhere to go only chances to take.
Gotta start working, got things at stake.

Take the right way instead of the left.
Be your own person, don't follow the rest.
Everytime you make the wrong choice.
Be sure you listen to your little voice.

Nobody on your side, they're all at your throat.
Barley holding on, barely keeping afloat,
Be strong, don't forget where you came form.
Sometimes you win, then you lose some.
