Reign or Save

Let me place reason in my step, 
Life's journey is filled with regret. 
So we try to atone for our mistakes, 
With each blessed day we wake. 
So many walk over others, 
Claiming that is why they're better. 
Why do we cling to those who hurt 
us, 
Torn apart with every fuss. 
So lost like the tears that fall, 
No way to reclaim them all. 
Trying always to correct the shame,
Life is not a test or game. 
Smirk that you've won today, 
Yet every life passes the same way. 
Bring suffering onto us for your 
pride, 
Lie that no one's held you while you 
cried. 
Selfishness never releases mercy,
And so they claim they couldn't see. 
Lying that life is nothing more than 
one's fate, 
Trouble is we see the truth way to 
late. 
We must learn to walk with each 
other, 
Nothing changes, if we don't learn 
to care for one another. 
If you believe that it's better to be 
strong, 
What will you take once your breath 
is gone. 
Will you regret or claim you've won..

    Thanks Homie, I try put a meaning in my poetry. If you're gonna pour your heart out, you gotta understand its meaning. But this could just be my stupid minded thinking, lol
