What You'll Get In The end

I remember when life seems so easy,
Care free moments, just sunny and breezy.
Now there is not enough hours in a day,
Often I find myself having little to say.

I work so much I forget how to live,
There seems no reward for all that I give.
I always remember there shall be more hope,
Giving me purpose and all the tools to cope.

The days get longer and nights are worse.
I seek happiness and look for a source.
I always believe it can be better than this,
As the sky glows orange it fills me with bliss.

`I search for peace when none can be found,
I listen closely to each and every sound.
So much happens and slowly fades away,
I seem to get lost in those shades of gray.

I think to myself I need to see all I get,
Just because it’s not here it may be yet.
I look to the horizon as the sun goes down low,
I see so many things just to watch them all go.

Still this is better than nothing at all,
They say the descent is worse than the fall.
I want something more so I try once again,
You will never know what you’ll get in the end.

    THIS IS NICE AND LIKE YOU SAID IT'S GOOD TO ALWAYS TRY AGAIN AND NOT TO GIVE UP 'CAUSE YOU'LL NEVER KNOW. LOVELY, KEEP IT UP

    Yes it is giving up is never an option for me. I may have moment when i wonder what if but you always seem to land back on the ground even if your head is in the clouds. Thanks for reading and have agreat night...Mark
