Why

upset about the way things are
crazy about the ones you miss

knowing things will be ok
but now its a vain kiss

a tease in a way only you know
no one else understands

the way the miss kisses your cheek
like a deck of cards, with the upper hand

there are substitutes for this craving
but only one thing can fit in

knowing that I long for this craving
but I must be long for what im gaining

staying here, miserable, can not sleep
the darkness, it creeps at my feet

knowing not for what I seek
poetry, its a depression that I keep

So long blue skies and butterflies
for darkness is all I see

Sleeping the day away
all night, restless sleep

But a brighter future lies in wake
for my soul knows no mistake

the future winds of greatly strength
will sing out loud, for what it takes

So now be strong my restless soul
for the future holds a brighter fold

That deck of cards might be cheating
But dont forget lifes lovely meaning

so down in the humps of man kinds...
singing out loud a joyous song

like the blue jays they are a whistle
a future bright as light is strong

But still the darkness is amass
across the land, it hasn't past

But remember the song the blue jay sings
It is a bright future, for well it means

So farewell cruel world my time is pass
I join the ranks of the elite at last

My world is now full of happiness
blue jays singing, at last! at last!

Misery is dead and gone
And now all i have is this poem and song

For my future lies bright ahead
thinking out loud, I'm on a course of stead

    That is really good to hear and to read. A poem that expresses the cruelty we often face in our life, but there is always a tomorrow and tomorrow is another day to make a better one. Cheers to a bright future! Thanks for sharing. Caroline.
