thats life.

by doubt41

this isn’t a rhyme,
or a song.
it’s not about politicians
or what’s right and wrong.
it’s not about the boy
who wears the mask,
or the one beaten by his dad.
its truth and fact.
all politicians are bad;
and the world doesn’t care
if you were beaten by dad.
its perspective
how it rules right and wrong.
you could die today
and despite what you say,
the world would never sway.
ill compose the end before you begin.
no matter the path you take
the destination remains the same.
we all die anyway.

    Thanks that helps me breathe a sigh of relief Smile
    I have to agree it is cynical I sort of based it on something my coach told me today, so it’s not that I fully agree with it myself.

      Nothing wrong with cynicism...especially if it inspires write like this.

you've defined yourself by your own belief system...this is a noble trait....i enjoyed your courage in blatant statements which many ponder internally quite often i presume..well done.

tell it like it is...i like that. it seems we encounter honesty less and less in favor of being politically correct, i find your poem very refreshing. you might consider removing the caps from all lines, it makes it easier to read Very Happy nicely done, though. i look forward to reading more of your work.

Wow! You said alot here. Life does suck time to time. We do all die at some point. In fact some people are barely living cause they are so miserble. Our childhood has everything to with who we are now. Good write. Very Happy
