life hurts

life hurts on so many degrees
from a little annoyance
and unsatisfied needs 
some of our hurts
bring us to our knee's
love and death are 
so hard to please
we give so much
in invested trust
to fate and those we love
these connections to our perfections
may one day cost too much
it's not what we'd give
but what we lived with 
someone special
someone that's there 
and cared
no matter what the hassle
our use is proof
and not miss use
to ever be misstaken
but grief is who we meet
when our happiness is taken

    Heartwrenching and sad..Just is like a rose with petals and thorns..The petals are the tender of our heart..moments of being happy..The thorns are moments when we re in grief..but they re there to make us strong..Hope you re ok nw John..and tnks for stopping by my poem..Im not into voodoo and never will be..You know i believe in God..That poem was inspired by a doxumentary i saw.I compared myself to a voodoo the sense of pain in life as if someone inserts pins and needles

    This is an awesome poem. You have some grammatical errors here and there, but they do not detract from its beauty. You are expressing a universal sentiment, which I always appreciate. And I'm a bit jealous that I didn't write some of these verses. This site is full of truly talented people. Great poem and wonderful read. Thanks for sharing!
