Tragedy & Traumas - Poem by JENIE FRANKSAY

tragedy never ends.
traumas never die.
somewhere deep in your heart
unnoticed they lie.

when life seems to bloom,
when sun seems to smile.
they will wake awhile.

they rise from their crematory,
killing your joy
shattering you completely.

they will remind you
of your unfortunate past.
till you drop & cry at last.

there is no cure.
these cause permanent scar.
to overcome past memories
is an endless war.
