Ever lost something that you admired the most, or someone that you were so close with? Losing someone or something is always sad and touching, it may cause havoc inside a human soul. You start feeling as if it is the end of the world, the anger, the blame, even war it can cause. Death, illnesses, accidents, enemies, etc. they all change everything in our lives. One thing you ask, is it really not the end of the world?

Forever is just an imaginary word after all.

They Take Away

 

From what we have, they take away

We sweat and cry day-by-day

Tears drop, and we pray

“Ow Lord!”, we say

I open up and go away,

Pack my shame and leave no blame

Who should I blame?

It’s what we have, they take away.

Happiness, smiles, dreams.

All left as memories.

Shame!

They never go away,

If we had nothing

Would they take something?
