The Cruelty of Life

Life is often times cruel To those of us who don’t deserve its cruelty. It starts in school Where we are forced to face reality. The school bully picks on us When we go out to recess. We suppress The pain we feel. We are put under much stress And our heads start to reel. It is meant to be I guess. But I don’t like this mess. It makes me feel So much stress At having such an unfair deal

    Now that is really well written with the realities of life in mind..the ol' ups and downs of life..I can still remember my school days and the big bullys there. One time a big dude tried to take off on my bike, so I ran after him and got my bike back and then his buddy ran up, and got in the middle of me retrieving my bike and so I had to pop him in the head with a half full big red bottle just when the cops pulled up...the sheriff was gonna pay my bond..big red got wasted dang it.L in Lou.
