    Sometimes, I think about taking it to the next level.
    Sometimes, I think, what's the point, just give in to the devil.
    Sometimes, I think, what's the point of life.
    Sometimes, I think about having kids and a wife.
    Sometimes, I wish that I could believe.
    Sometimes, I get fed up, and just leave.
    Sometimes, I settle, and give in to despair.
    Sometimes, I realize there's no time to spare.
    Sometimes, I think, she really couldn't like me
    Sometimes, I think, she couldn't like anyone but me.
    Sometimes, I look at my life, and think, what have I done.
    Sometimes, I wish I would have had more fun.
    Sometimes, I think its best to let what you want to come to you.
    Sometimes, you must go for what you want, or you won't know what to do.
    Sometimes, I'll believe whatever I see.
    Sometimes, I don't believe what I can be.
    Sometimes, I fold when it gets hot,
    But for now on, I will always take my shot.

    Ahhh....I know firsthand that life is full of "sometimes and maybes"
    I must say that you posed this one VERY WELL.
    Describing the state of mind
    Then refuting the when's and the why's of life with courage
    Very nice poet!!!!!! Very nice poem!!!!!! :peace:

    sometimes we wonder if we can live up to the hype

    but, in the end, we'll always do what we have to...to survive.

    continue the flow.

    Sometimes I do feel the way you do
    Sometimes I wish I could change the past too
    Sometimes I fall into pain & despair
    Sometimes I read a poem & I'm touched
    Just had too let you know that this was one of them & I liked it very much
    flow on
