About the Poem

This poem is one I wrote right after I got off the phone to a female I liked who was going to get asked out the next day. I was also unhappy about many other things going on in my life at the time. So..... I got my emotions out on paper like I always do.

Sorrow and Pain

some live life in the
fast lane
some get stuck with a
ball & chain
some lives are known, simply
by name
some get only
Sorrow & Pain

some lives are filled
with riches
some get to live in
the ditches
some live with their
insanity contained
some get only
Sorrow & Pain

some lives have no riches, some have
caviar & wine
some get to live a life thats
like mine
some lives can't differentiate between
that line
some get only
Sorrow & Pain

some lives are short, yet the
memory remains
some get anger and keep
it retained
some live and get justice;the
cold & rain
some get nothing but
Sorrow & Pain
