Life Is Rather Strange...-A Poem

Life Is Rather Strange...

Life is rather strange, this we all know,

Giving us gifts that we later must let go.

Forcing us to grieve but then making us smile

Giving us a reason to live all the while.

Life is difficult, full of hurt and disease

And during these hard times things just seem to freeze.

We are in a stand still, with no will to carry on

We are merely in a game of chess, we are the pawn.

A puppet with no control of where we'll end

In a movie being played over and over again.

It seems like a curse even at times

As we must deal with drugs and such horrid crimes.

We carry on day in and day out

With less of a smile and more of a pout.

And darkness seems to overwelm us from every corner

As we see another mourner.

This is the time that we must reach with in deep

To find the light I know that each and everyone of us keep.

The strength that I know we all do own

And we will finally sit upon that thrown.

We will manage to smile again,

Laugh and dance again.

We will manage through the day

To walk through this fog, through this gray.

We can do this, just hang on

Eventually the pain will be gone.

writer20, loosing ones brother is one thing I couldn't even imagine. My brother is in the army and I fear loosing him every time he travels over seas. Writing poetry can be a great way to help us express ourselves and in turn, make us feel better.

Hattie, thank you for reading. :)

Irell, thank you, I am glad you found it to be inspirational as well as interesting. Thanks for voting up.
