How hello is always accompanied by a good bye,

How the good memories will eventually make you cry,

How forever never really last,

How we're always sad and happy in contrast.

 

How "friends" can leave you when your down,

How you need something but no ones around,

How true friends are so hard to find,

How fake friends talk about you behind.

 

How people will eventually change,

How come in the worst times people think you can manage,

How you will be by yourself one day,

How people will not always be okay.

 

How people think there so much better,

How many lies are there packed in a love letter.

How people will forgive but never forget,

How you can have so much regret.

 

How trust is so hard to gain,

How all your efforts can be in vain.

How respect is earned ,

How loyalty is returned.

 

How no one can change the way they look, you or me,

How people can just change the way they see,

How you should always be kind,

How you would never know their state of mind.

 

How no one is really perfect ,

How you should always respect.

How people will always have something bad to say,

How you should ignore them and continue your way.

 

How you should expect nothing,

How you should appreciate everything.

Wonderful poem. I loved the way you described the some bitter truth in simple words. Yea, that's the thing. Never expect anything from life. But we are humans after all. Everyone cannot be Guru Buddha.

Indeed ! You have mentioned the truth of the life in your own way. There's a saying that 'the truth is bitter'. Great job Nithu. This is the favorite poem out of all your writings :)
