This is a poem about how I describe A life as an earthquake.

To have it all
To be loved
To be wanted
And even admired…..
Then to have it all
Come crashing on me
Like an earthquake
Breaking the Earth in two
Having pieces of debris
Come crashing down
Falling and smashing the Earth
Are like the pieces of my life
Slamming on me quickly
With no where to turn to get away
The wood that falls from the sky
Is like the love I’ve had
It’s crushing me now.
The glass that falls from the sky
Are like the people I love
That are leaving me now.
The pieces of debris
That come around from every direction
Are like all the good things in my life
That are now completely destroyed.
My life has become an earthquake
That destroys everything
Without even trying
Or putting in a hand
To tear it all apart
Earthquakes are horrible
Destructible and dangerous
So it really sucks
To describe your life as one
My life is an earthquake
That continues
And will never end.

Somebody that I wish wouldn't have.
Wish I would have never even looked at the person. But, I did. I'm mending, though. Thank God for that!
