    Life will make u happy and sad
    Life will make u do bad
    when will it make me glad?
    How far will i go?
    Only GOD knows
    My life is like a show
    People stay, watch and then go
    Am i nameless?
    NO
    I'm priceless
    Like life is
    I'm teary eyed as i write this
    Should my life be dismissed?
    cuz
    I feel like ish
    I'm pissed
    Here i sit
    Cconfused
    Unamused
    I feel refused
    REFUSED by life
    I'm tired of the fight
    Tired of living right
    I'll run out into the night
    And scream and scream
    Loud and louder
    Until my voice is heard
    Until others learn my word
    Until BOLA has the nerve
    The nerve to love life
    even though it's not always BRIGHT

    Aw, my fellow poet. I have lived in that place you are living, more days than I care to remember. For everyone it is different, but I will say this: don't ever give up. Keep trying every day and it will get better. I promise. There is light on the other side - I am here to tell you. The people here on this forum also care about you very much. I am sending pieces of hope and love your way. :heart:

    everything in life
    is not always what it seems to be
    and certainly their are no absolutes
    in our mentalities...
    unless we put them there ourselves

    nice scribe
    peace

    hey bola :wave: well, that which yoiu bring here, is what we all experience day to day, sometimes I don't bother write cuz readin others' scribes makes me feel better about my plight. Like the others say, 'been there before'. Wasn't this scribe therapy to your soul?? It was to mine...
