Sad Round of Beer

Sad Round of Beer

When in all of self-pity a person wallows
Will soon be greeted by their own gallows,
And all the many things they tried to hide
Encouraging efforts to commit suicide.

With many felt like I had a close bond
Which disappeared with wave of a magic wand;
To many may seem tragic my difficult end
So this euphoric, eloquent eulogy must send.

What words could describe my each woe?
Battle is over and towel in have to throw,
And now on earth, I am no longer are here;
For Robin, drink one more sad round of beer.

    To God I many times I talk to Which in my poems is through So as a few more you start to read You will know God has fulfilled my need. What do you think. Go back to my poems and read some more of them pertaining to Robin Williams's death. Jim Horn

    You nailed it my friend. Depression uses self pity like a carpenter uses a hammer! Once the battle is over may as well drink a beer to salute the former soul of the victim that lost the fight. Great write amigo!!
