A Life is a Life

Poetry By: Tangible Word

A poem I thought I'd write
So I did

I'm going to try and simplify

She sits crying at home

Tears on her face magnify

The hurt that makes her feel alone

He's out on the porch

An orange pierced sky his life

Though his world, he'd love to torch

A part of him looks past the strife

She doesn't see the point in living

Hard hit, pain makes it hard to breath

A heart that has done no giving

A voices, which anger does seethe

He cries out to a deaf, far away god

His past comes around like a fog

When pain's the only reality

He's reminded of his own infedilety

She stares up at a starry sky

He sighs at an old, ruined life

A part of her begins to die

He wishes to be with his wife

Memories of old do haunt like ghosts

No stories does he or she boasts

A life of misery makes for a sad story

Dark, stained, no glory

He stares at the last few pages

She puts the pen to the book

He hasn't smiled in ages

She finally crawls out of her nook

Though years have passed

A life is a life

No matter how our sins have massed

You can still write

And make right

The wrong

Of the song

To erase the coming night

And ignite a cold, weary life
