Not Just You

Go ahead and tell me your 
problems
Your life of misery and pain
How mine is all "sunshine and 
roses"
And you live in mud and rain

Tell me I've had life handed to me
Gained it all without effort 
But yours, oh yours could never be 
happy
Being stuck in a never ending hurt

Blame it on my color
blame it on my age
Any reason that my life is easier
Than yours by any way

I'm sorry if you think I'm perfect
Born in some heavenly role
That people live a flawless story
While your the exception to the rule

Now I normally don't complain
Because I love you enough to listen
But you beat down hate with every 
comeback
When I try to offer some elder 
wisdom

I understand that you have 
struggles 
Feeling like its all on you
But so does every other being 
IT'S NOT JUST YOU

    Very true. We all have something to contend with. As my dad says 'Nobody gets a free ride in this world'! Well written piece, enjoyed. Em :)
