Take, Use, Throw Away

To Life
Life that gives us love, gives us hope, gives us truth
Life that grants us strength, grants us power, grants us youlth
To life that takes the pain while forcing minds to fade to hay
To Life that is the dreadful gift to much rist to throw away

To Pain
Pain that makes us tear, makes us pray, makes us screach
Pain that makes us love just to hate, to try to reach
To pain that we will shake, we will fright, we will cry
To pain that makes us mar until the day that we die

To Death
It's death that takes this pain, takes all this sarro, helps us escape
But maybe what we're meant to do is find our minds a brand new shape

    Powerful writing here. I think you covered all bases. Yes, life is hard, a dreadful gift as you say, great wording. Death will certainly be the final escape but do we really want to ? Excellent writing!
