In life we lose so much..

A poem inspired by a motivational video I watched recently, and also by the fact that I don't think I have what it takes to save myself.

In life we lose so much

Most of which we don't notice as such

But a friend you treasure most

Can disappear as fast as a ghost

The worst part is they leave a trace

Like a scar upon a cold pale face

Forever and always visible

Making a life substandard and miserable.


Eventually we have to ask

Do I even have a task?

As life soon seems pointless

Like a knee left jointless

Forever embraced by pain

Left struggling for anything to gain.


The only person that can save you

Is the one who's foot fits your shoe

Deep down we know we always knew

That in the end your saviour, is you.
