Behind- a poem for him

Updated on January 10, 2013

Left

To old and new ways

Of sadness and pain


Without

A care

A hope

For something better


Despite the wishes

Or prayers

Or desires


Empty determination

Aching to move

Forward

But lagging

Behind

In the pits

Of memories

And used-to-be's


Pulling out

The love

With a bit of goodness left

Through the mud and misery


Covered in filth

In need of a

Bath

A renewal

And something

To look forward to

Without all the

Despicable chaos

Of broken promises

And gaggles of lies


A determination

That needs simply

To push on

Without disappointment.


Trampling all the pathetic

Tragedies

In its path.
