Despairity (Triquatrain )


Sands of time, a world sublime
This unforgiving life
Try you may, and though you pray
The pain cuts like a knife

Easier each day, or so they say
Time will heal the saying goes
Tightening rope, losing hope
Despair that no one knows

Wish for good, misunderstood
How could things get worse
Strength diminished, patience finished
Your suffering destiny's curse

Thinking negative, no more to give
Live each day as it's your last
If you were gone, they would go on
Left with memories of the past

Gone but not forgotten, begotten
A shame things turned out this way
When in need, a friend indeed
Came to save the day

Others too busy, drama makes you dizzy
They live their life the same
Should be so glad, their life isn't this sad
And who should carry now the blame
