Here my friend
take this toke
and I'll crack a joke
About this bloke
who I met at a fair
oh he seemed so flair
and he told me something
I ought not to forget

Dont live a life
untrue to yourself
Never hold a lie
within yourself

his words reassured

with undeniable leisure
Go my friend
Go on and tame that beast
who seeks to enjoy
nothing but the feast

as I continue his lore
You'll know more
You'll give more
than you ever want to feel

so with a heavy sigh

and a last goodbye
Don't ride the fray
untrue to your self
Won't you come alive
Within yourself

      Indeed, I remember feeling really down and out when I scribbled these words down. Needless to say, I felt much better afterward. Glad you enjoyed it.

      What a great poem. We must live an honest life and not hold back. We only get one life to live, so might as well live it the way you want and do what makes you happy. Good job
