Lost At Sea Just You And Me

Life Moves On

Nobody can see the pain that is hidden

The rage that runs so deep

The sun rises and so do all the old bad memories

The sun sets and so do all the old bad memories

We make choices that affect everything and everyone we know and love

The sadness we deal with is easier than the unknown we have to face

Being alone and without

Complicated and confused

We cry ourselves to sleep at night

Existing for reasons beyond our control

Happiness is an illusion that other people have

Where I live a life of misery and suffering

I am to blame

I have chosen to box myself in

Turning away from any chance of peace

Blurred by irrational thoughts and faulty thinking

I do it for my children

My life of sudden death

Where everything I know to be true isn't

Everything I want I can't have

Pain has become my middle name

Where I live life for my kids

There is no way out

No help for me

Time ticks away as I slowly age

Forgetting my future and living in a world of sadness and suffering

There is no hope for someone who believes in their lies

This is the only way

To live and survive

Very sad and powerful. I hope this isn't from your own life...? It reminds me of the song "My Boy" from Celtic Thunder.

Lost At Sea Just You And Me gives me more to think about and lies sometimes gets in the way too.

Sunny River I watch as other people face this harsh reality. I am very blessed.DDE I got this idea from reading one of your hubs. I tied it in with problems other people have and the emotional pain they suffer.Thank you both for reading and sharing. Merry Christmas and have a wonderful and prosperous new year.

Gypsy Rose Lee I let my feelings go and get deep into my thoughts. So many people see life different and experience every day with worry and problems. I try to understand their views. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Painful, and sad, yes. Someone used this word. Still, so topical!

There are lots of insights here and this in itself is an incredible positive thing, used well. Let us pray for one another and for others. For lessons learned and yet to be learned. The Divine is always merciful. Indeed, this is at the heart of Her Law.

manatita44 Some people manage to get themselves in a pickle. Not finding an easy way out. They feel trapped and alone. Feeling comfort in their own sorrow they find any way they can to complain about tomorrow. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Yes, I know, Bro.

Necessary poem. Let us send out Mehta (loving kindness) at this time. I send them and I, of course, healing thoughts. Peace.

manatita44 Unfortunately so many people don't live the life they want and continue to struggle every day not changing their ways. May God give them the strength to see life in a whole new light. Thank you for reading and commenting on my writing. Each day I am so thankful for what I have and more thankful for what I don't have.

manatita44 I believe we are all here on earth for one purpose. As simple or hard as it may be. To learn how to get along and help each other. We are given many opportunities and choices to do anything we want. We make many of our own decisions and some our made for is. Life plays itself out. We have to think of all the outcomes of every situation and live the best life we can. Life is so incredible. Only when years have passed do we see what we could of done and didn't. With this knowledge we once again are given so many chances. It is always our decision and our future. The game of life where we get to watch, participate and enjoy. Thank you so much for reading and sharing on this special day.
