    Funny

    Isn’t it funny, how you can be surrounded by people and still be so alone.
    Funny, how you can have a house to live in, and never have a home.
    It is so funny how a person can smile, yet he feels so dead inside…
    Funny, how a person can laugh, when he really wants to cry.
    Isn’t it funny how a person is grateful to live, yet he wishes to die.
    I think it’s funny how a person can seem calm, and act so wild…?
    Its funny, how someone can have a mother and father, yet he feels like a parentless child….
    How can a person say they love you, and hurt you so deep?
    Its funny, how you can feel tired, yet you can’t sleep.
    I find that it’s very funny that someone can know a lot of people, and still have no friends….
    Funny how a person can recover from rejection, only to get hurt again.
    Now, the thing is, I know that these things I have mentioned are not really funny at all.
    So why am I saying it is?
    I know why…
    It’s just my way of covering the truth with a lie, hoping that the pain will die.
    Funny.

    Isn't it funny how these things
    are not funny but the awareness
    of its truth, can still make
    you smile.

    Excellent write!!!!

    Isn't it funny how humor can disuise the pain you feel
    Funny that you laugh when you know the despair is real
    The tears keep falling, but they never reach the ground
    Funny how you feel most lonely when "loved ones" are around
    Its funny how so very many people feel the same way you do
    Im not laughing though, cuz through this poem, I relate so much to you.

    This poem was very sad, but it was masterfully executed. What's not funny is how great a poet you are....Nuff said.

    Clever piece...
    you've captured
    the duality of man
    and conveyed...
    how "funny" it is but isn't
    in a flow that is tyte...
