Taken for granted, life is lost to us
We tend to stay alone, we tend to sway from trust
Warnings are ignored and children run away
Life is made much harder with each passing day
No one seems to care, for anyone but self
Others hopes and dreams, are put back on the shelf
While many dreams lay dying, others start to fade
We lose at the lives, that we never made

Now that life is lonely, now that life is sad
We start to feel for, the lives we've never had
Life seems hopeless, so we turn our cheek
Expecting bad things, you're labeled a freak
You don't know if you, should even really care
In your time of need, there was no one there
Why can't life be good? Why be cursed like this?
The pressure builds up, until you slit your wrists

Is it reaching too much, to hope for something better?
You go to the mailbox, not a single letter
From either your kids, that you worked to raise
They no longer need you, you have parted ways
When was the last time, you were truly glad
You were never happy, no matter what you had
Money bought so much, other than your pleasure
Just to have somebody would feel like a treasure

With everything that I have done
To try to live my life again
I always knew that I was wrong
I never want to feel again

To you, who expressed life's pain, You are not alone, but have locked inside, your very spirit, stop the tears, let your spirit fly. When you were born, a world began, a life unto itself, you belong to you, although you shared yourself. You have a friend, you have yourself.

There is no one who is truly alone, with out love, or a place called home, we have ourselves, you have always been the best of friends. Let your sole and spirit fly, no one, no one is ever, alone!

Marci & Martin

Glad you felt this one too Marci. Thanks for the generous comment.

Martin, I appreciate the comforting words, but I didn't really understand them. I don't really see the relevance to this poem... but I appreciate it anyway.
