Sometimes one contemplates
They try and figure out their plight
Perhaps they think on things that keep them up at night.
Sometimes there are no answers
That still does not sit right with them
Redundantly they keep on a thinking, transporting into another realm,
Sometimes even things right in their face
Don’t deter them and they fail to take notice, even if it fits
Things and people will leave you hints, leave you clues, if you can understand this.
Sometimes life is cruel, unjust, and unfit
It goes the same for the smart ones or the dumb
One can only wish there was a way to be numb.
Sometimes the hardest lessons are merely trials
Judgments and persecutions from one person’s mind, to ours
More than all that, is in how we respond, do we cower or soar?
Sometimes there is that one person
Afraid to feel, to live, to love, or to continue with strife
Those people are not the ones who survive.
Sometimes the ones who live, love, and continue despite things
Are the ones who have learnt that anything worth having is not easy
Perhaps they just know.
