How i said goodbuy to some one i new

Another day has ended and home I start to go,

The traffics heavy with cars going only where the drivers know,

It starts to rain that’s all I need after the day that I’ve just had,

It’s poring now getting hard to see,

The car in front it breaks I nearly hit him hard,

Slow down I thought let the others race,

I will get home eventually.

Driving down towards my front door what will be there tonight.

A happy greeting or a drunken bum,

I park the car and take a breath,

Turn the key in the door tense again,

No more I thought this time you can go,

I walked into the lounge and there you are,

Sat perch upon your throne again,

A beer in one hand the TV remote in the other.

I stood still for a moment and just stared,

Is this what life is all bout,

No there has to be something better out there,

I stood so tall and proud and spoke these words to you,

“If you don’t leave this house I will end up hating you”

I got a reaction straight away.

He said “But why”

I said “it’s plain to see the drink and you plus the TV there’s just seems no place for me”.

So it seems we all endure such hardships and pain. Sometimes I want to give up, but I can't. I've seen and have beauty in my life. I and everyone else will prevail.
