Behind- a poem for him

Updated on January 10, 2013


To old and new ways

Of sadness and pain


A care

A hope

For something better

Despite the wishes

Or prayers

Or desires

Empty determination

Aching to move


But lagging


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


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


In its path.
